Hello, I am Mike Birbiglia and I want you to read my book. Too on the nose? Sorry. Let me dial it back. I#x19;m Mike Birbiglia and I#x19;m a comedian. You may know me from Comedy Central or This American Life or The Bob & Tom Show, but you#x19;ve never seen me like this before. Naked. Wait, that#x19;s the name of another book. Also I#x19;m not naked as there are no pictures in my book. Also, if there were naked pictures of me, you definitely wouldn#x19;t buy it, though you might sneak a copy into the back corner of the bookstore and show it to your friend and laugh. Okay, let#x19;s get off the naked stuff. This is my first book. It#x19;s difficult to describe. It#x19;s a comedic memoir, but I#x19;m only 32 years old so I#x19;d hate for you to think I#x19;m #x1C;wrapping it up,#x1D; 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, #x1C;Michael, you might want to stay away from the per#xAD;sonal stuff.#x1D; I said, #x1C;Dad, just read the dedication.#x1D; (Which I#x19;m 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.
