The last time readers heard from writer, humorist, actor, podcast host, and all-around funny and insightful guy John Hodgman, he was satirically peddling fake world knowledge in three surprisingly convincing tomes released between 2005 and 2011.

He also toured with a one-man show, Vacationland, in which he told stories of living in western Massachusetts and Maine with sincerity and humor. Hodgman turned the idea for that show into a beautifully written memoir, also called Vacationland (and subtitled “True Stories From Painful Beaches”).
