Actress and comedian Amy Sedaris once again rivals Martha Stewart with a new book to help her fans through these dire economic times. It is appropriately named Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. She previously shared her domestic skills in the satirical guide to entertaining I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. Part of the National Affairs Series.

Sedaris was the anti-heroine Jerri Blank in Comedy Central's cult hit Strangers with Candy, which she wrote with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello. She has appeared in the movies "Elf," "School of Rock," "Maid in Manhattan," the film version of "Bewitched" and on television in "Rescue Me," "Monk," "Just Shoot Me!" "Sex and the City," and "My Name Is Earl." She also made a guest appearance on "Sesame Street" as a flustered Snow White who keeps losing her dwarves. Amy is half of the Obie-winning "Talent Family" playwright team with her brother, author and essayist David Sedaris. She lives in Manhattan with her imaginary boyfriend, Ricky, and her pet rabbit, Dusty.
