Don't Get Too Comfortable by David Rakoff

Don't Get Too Comfortable is a funny and sharp collection of essays that skewer current bourgeoisie cultural excess. The essays include inventories of Hooters Air and a cryogenics storage facility, critiques of Paris couture and Beverly Hills "re-facing" salons, the author's observations while working as a cabana boy at a plush South Beach hotel, and more.

  1. I saw Rakoff on the Daily Show a month or so ago (promoting the paperback version of his book), and he was very funny. It was a welcome change from seeing Jon Stewart playing nice with politicians and celebrities -- Rakoff is a snarky queen and they were very funny playing off each other.
