Sister Elizabeth Dunderstock has a problem. A lifelong member of the Squeamish religious order, she has sustained her community for years with sales of her renowned cheese balls. But when a visitor, Brother Brightbee, threatens to learn her secret recipe, Elizabeth runs away from Cluster Haven and ventures out into the real world, a surreal landscape filled with alcoholic waiters, llama-restricted parking lots and Ukranian immigrants in Mr. Peanut costumes. This quirky, uproariously funny comedy is the brainchild of brother-sister duo David and Amy Sedaris, who bring their unique wit, snarky zingers and sidesplitting humor to this latest offering. The Huffington Post writes, “Combining the Sedaris siblings’ creative genius yields nothing short of a spectacle.” A charming tale of religious iconoclasm, self-discovery and uncontrollable sweating, “The Book of Liz” promises to leave you rolling in the aisles and craving a smoky cheese ball. —Jennifer Harlan
