10 Great Beach (Or Pool) Reads: Sedaris, Capote, And More

“The Easy Way Out” by Stephen McCauley

Even though it was published 20 years ago, Stephen McCauley’s The Easy Way Out withstands the test of time as an amusing, smart, and provocative story about a gay man who struggles with commitment. Patrick O’Neil is a disenchanted travel agent who’s bored in his current relationship. His two brothers are also having relationships woes, as are their parents. Basically, nobody in this book is happy, which is part of what makes it such a delightful read. Through his dark humor, sharply-drawn characters, and punchy dialog, McCauley delivers the perfect blend of funny and sad.

      David Sedaris’ latest book is hilarious! The parts on his time in China blew my mind!
