The Book of Liz
When humorist David Sedaris teams up with little sister Amy, incredibly bizarre comedy is in the cards. Would you expect less from a stalwart Luddite and a ribald actressboth of whom exhibit obsessive-compulsive tendencies?

But Donderstock has a talentshes the creator of a lucrative type of cheeseball, which comes in two flavors: traditional and smoky. After the communes leader, the Reverend Tollhouse, hijacks her operation, she strikes out on her own to make it in the real world. We wont give the whole thing away, but her first encounter out there is with an individual dressed as Mr. Peanut. Deliciously droll.
