"I like short stories because I don't often get a lot of time to read while I'm touring; I have to take things in chunks and I find I really like short stories when I'm on tour.

"There's hilarity that ensues in the everyday little things and mistakes that happen — and all the fun things that can happen within a family. It's just so well written and so easy to read and I just love it. I think it's a great book."
