Book Review: How Did You Get This Number

I had read Sloane Crosley's first collection of essays, I Was Told There'd Be Cake, and loved her writing style.  Her biting Manhattan sarcasm seeps into every word about killing a bear cub, stealing furniture, and her crazy roommate.  However, I feel the endings sometimes fall slightly flat.  The build-up is amazing, but the finale is a little less so.  Her writing seems to have matured a bit in this second attempt.  Best of all, this is a super quick read.  Give it two sittings and you'll be done.
