"A subversive, hilarious take on the made-by-hand movement."--The Orlando Sentinel "Amy Sedaris proves she has her finger on the pulse of the domestic-arts world - especially for those on a budget- with her latest book . . . it's vintage Sedaris, combining sweet intentions with gross-out humor."--Madison.com "Recommended . . .The humorist, satiric hostess and hilarious disguise artist offers left-field crafting tips for weird costumes, irreverent samplers, and more for these, our lean economic times."--The Wichita Eagle "In this laugh-out-loud book, Amy Sedaris, one of the funniest humans on the planet, confronts the hard-hitting craft questions that other books refuse to even acknowledge . . . With the hectic holiday season almost upon us, this nifty book could be your lifeboat to sanity, or maybe not. Regardless, it is fun and every bit as amusing as Amy's previous bestseller."--The Tucson Citizen "In step with her hilarious how-to debut . . . provides a jolt of laughter that anyone can use in simple times like these."--Instinct Magazine "The funny new book we're loving . . . Had us cracking up from the first page . . .The entire guide is written in that laugh-out-loud style, making it a fun read even for those who have no interest in crafting. But for people who are into crafting, the book is a gold mine of ideas."--Cosmopolitan.com "A wildly cheeky guide."--InStyle "Just like her previous book, "Times" is colorful and instantly funny. It's perhaps the only book you'll ever read with tips on how to make both good love and good sausage. Separately, of course."--The News & Observer (NC) "Hip and hilarious."--The Buffalo News "Sedaris crams 21 chapters with wickedly funny projects, sage counsel and painstakingly detailed photographic spreads."--Bookpage "Will leave readers in stitches . . . Her hilarious and hilariously illustrated guide has sections on crafting while angry, crafting for the criminally insane and crafting while amped up on amphetamines."--The Boston Herald "Hilarious."--The Miami Herald "Imagine a Girl Scout jamboree suddenly overtaken by a band of circus freaks. That's roughly the effect of "Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People," the colorful new craft book by comedian Amy Sedaris."--The Wall Street Journal "If there was any doubt that Amy Sedaris is a kookier, kitschier version of Martha Stewart in the four years since the release of her best-selling, "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence," get out your Popsicle sticks, toupee tape and clamshells. Sedaris proves her place as a domestic maven for today's irony-loving do-it-yourselfers with her latest book. "Simple Times" is steeped in '70s campiness, with a youthful, can-do attitude walking through an extensive list of projects, neatly indexed in the back, from Acorn Crafts to Macaroni Alien Mask and Yesterday's Newspaper Scuffs. "Simple Times" is an ideal gift for the crafter who has crafted everything."--The Associated Press Sedaris often defies description. So does her book, SIMPLE TIMES, a hyperkinetic hodgepodge of "Crafts for Poor People" celebrating traditional American handicrafts, as well as diversions like keeping pet rabbits and making mint juleps. ...the book's sheer visual exuberance and wide scope make it obvious that Sedaris is a dedicated follower of the pipe-cleaner arts. While SIMPLE TIMES may not be for the dour D.I.Y.-er to whom crafting is a competitive sport, it has strong potential as a gift for anyone who's ever collected hats crocheted together, or Barbie dolls in knitted antebellum dresses designed to cover an extra roll of toilet paper - or simply for fans of Amy Sedaris and her idiosyncratic sense of humor.--The New York Times Book ReviewReseña del editor:
According to Amy Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. But in her new book SIMPLE TIMES she sets the record straight, doing for crafting what she did so brilliantly and successfully for entertaining in her bestseller I Like You.
Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows us that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters. Readers will discover how to make popular crafts such as crab claw roach clips, tinfoil balls and crepe paper moccasins; where to look for inspiration (buy fruit and let it get old, what shapes does it turn into?); instructions for creating your very own craft room; and ways to avoid the most common crafting accidents (sawdust fires, feather asphyxia, pine cone lodged in throat); plus whole chapters full of crafting ideas (pompom ringworms!) that will inspire you to create your own hastily constructed obscure d'arts; and more of the brilliant recipes and ingenious ideas for hostessing and entertaining that she gave us in I Like You.
