I'm looking for a book

Marie:
I'm looking for a book... something that can help me deal with what might be an awkward situation. Something funny might be nice, but not necessarily big, 'ha, ha, ha,' 'laugh, laugh, laugh' funny, and certainly not make-fun-of-other-people funny but rather something human-funny. And, uh, if it could uh, sneak up on you, surprise you, and at the same time make you think that what you thought wasn't only right, in a wrong kind of way, but when you're wrong, there's a certain rightness in your wrongness... Well, what I mean is, more importantly, I'm looking to be swept up! And at the same time, not.
Dan Burns:
Well, you rarely find all that in one book.

Transcript:
Yes.
I'm looking for a book,
obviously.
Anything in particular?
Yeah, something that can help me...
deal with what might be
an awkward situation.
What kind of...
Something funny might be nice.
But not necessarily
laugh-out-loud funny.
And certainly not
make-fun-of-other-people funny...
but rather something,
human funny.
Ok.
And, if it could...
sneak up on you,
surprise you...
and at the same time make
you think that what you thought...
was not only right
in a wrong kind of way...
but when you're wrong...
there's a certain rightness
to your wrongness.
Maybe, what I mean is...
more importantly,
I'm looking to be swept up.
And at the same time, not.
I wanna feel a deep connection...
to something.
Maybe I don't know
what I'm looking for.
You rarely
find it all in just one book.
That's why there're so many.
- So, what do we have?
- We have...
- a sort of potpourri...
- Potpourri?
of possibilities... Yes.
We have poetry.
Dickinson, basic stuff.
Little Neruda is always good.
- I agree.
- Now!
This is actually a real page-turner:
"The Life of Gandhi".
Nobody has ever
been quite so cool as him.
