Publisher Comments:

The bestselling entertaining guide from America's most delightfully unconventional hostess is now available in paperback!


Are you lacking direction in how to whip up a swanky soiree for lumberjacks? A dinner party for white-collar workers? A festive gathering for the grieving? Don't despair. Take a cue from entertaining expert Amy Sedaris and host an unforgettable fete that will have your guests raving. No matter the style or size of the gathering-from the straightforward to the bizarre-I LIKE YOU provides jackpot recipes and solid advice laced with Amy's blisteringly funny take on entertaining, plus four-color photos and enlightening sidebars on everything it takes to pull off a party with extraordinary flair. You don't even need to be a host or hostess to benefit-Amy offers tips for guests, too! (Number one: don't be fifteen minutes early.) Readers will discover unique dishes to serve alcoholics (Broiled Frozen Chicken Wings with Applesauce), the secret to a successful children's party (a half-hour time limit, games included), plus a whole appendix chock-full of arts and crafts ideas (from a mini-pantyhose plant-hanger to a do-it-yourself calf stretcher), and much, much more!

Synopsis:

Sedaris's blisteringly funny take on entertaining plus color photos and enlightening sidebars on everything it takes to pull off a party with extraordinary flair make this volume an entertaining book from one of the country's most delightfully unconventional hostesses.

This is the best book of the decade. It can make anyone laugh at least a little bit no matter what your sense of humor. And that's what makes the world go 'round.

This book is hilarious and a great gift for your witty friend who likes to entertain! I gave it to a friend who has actually tried to recreate some of the crafts in this book. Sedaris is a comedic powerhouse, it is clearly genetic. She has her own style and her own passion for crafting and feasting!
