If David Sedaris, Chelsea Handler, Larry David, and Caitlin Moran had the unlikeliest orgy in history, the resulting love child might one day write a book like this rollicking collection of true tales from Roy Sekoff, the founding editor of the Huffington Post. Whether he’s describing a teenage pilgrimage to a Times Square porn superstore, life-changing experiences with high colonics and psychic readings, an ill-fated attempt to make off with a tissue containing Oprah’s tears, or that time Chevy Chase grabbed his balls at a funeral, Sekoff is a lively, irreverent raconteur whose sharp observations wring laughs out of a ludicrous yet relatable life. Told with zinging wit and zero propriety, “Lacks Self-Control” is a testament to his unwavering commitment to overshare.
