Hello, I am Mike Birbiglia and I want you to read my book. Too on the nose? Sorry. Let me dial it back. Iam Mike Birbiglia and Iam a comedian. You may know me from Comedy Central or This American Life or The Bob a Tom Show, but youave never seen me like this before. Naked. Wait, thatas the name of another book. Also Iam not naked as there are no pictures in my book. Also, if there were naked pictures of me, you definitely wouldnat buy it, though you might sneak a copy into the back corner of the bookstore and show it to your friend and laugh. Okay, letas get off the naked stuff. This is my first book. Itas difficult to describe. Itas a comedic memoir, but Iam only 32 years old so Iad hate for you to think Iam awrapping it up, a so to speak. But I tell some personal stories. Some REALLY personal stories. Stories that I considered not publishing time and time again, especially when my father said, aMichael, you might want to stay away from the perAssonal stuff.a I said, aDad, just read the dedication.a (Which Iam telling you to do too.) Some of the stories are about my childhood, some are about girls I made out with when I was thirteen, some are about my parents, and some are, of course, about my bouts with sleepwalking. Bring this book to bed. And sleepwalk with me.In a tie-in to a one-man show that will be touring the United States in Fall 2010, a comedian offers a charming, funny memoir about first love, denial, sleepwalking and the perils and pitfalls of being ... himself.
