Main description:

Welcome to the perverse and hilarious mind of Sara Barron. In The Harm in Asking, she boldly addresses the bizarre indignities of everyday life: from invisible pets to mobster roommates. From a hatred of mayonnaise to an unrequited love of k.d. lang. From the ruinous side effect of broccoli to the sheer delight of a male catalogue model. In a voice that is incisive and entirely her own, Barron proves herself the master of the awkward, and achieves something wonderful and rare: a book that is both strange and funny.

Review quote:

Praise for Sara Barron

“Sara Barron’s essays… are, dare we say it, as funny as David Sedaris . . . When you aren't squirming, you're laughing out loud." –Los Angeles Times
 
“Sara Barron is the reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene. In The Harm in Asking she proves she's even better written down." –Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test

"A wickedly funny and dirty treasure trove of modern day oddballs." –Sloane Crosley, author of I Was Told There'd Be Cake

"Hilarious... Sedaris and Crosley come off as adorable children in Barron's presence." –Cleveland Plain Dealer
