John Hodgman's first book, The Areas of My Expertise, turned the trivia-book genre into an exercise in supershort fiction. His newest book, More Information Than You Require, applies this formula to memoir, describing what Hodgman's surprise midlife fame—the Apple ads! the movies!—is really like. It's hard to imagine fake trivia being deeply personal, but amid the one-liners (the citizens of Richmond, Virginia, call a sandwich a "meat coffin" and "Randy Quaid has had secret rabies since 1991") there's the story of a man who is grateful for, and deeply puzzled by, his own success.
