Interested in the full range of human faults, foibles, dysfunction and self-delusion? You could spend your evening re-reading the DSM-IV Manual. Or you could opt to spend some time with an even more entertaining catalog of idiosyncrasies: Charmer, the latest album from Aimee Mann, as fine a chronicler of the human comedy as popular music has produced.
Names have been obscured to protect the guilty, but you will almost certainly recognize yourself in these short narratives, along with the fellow travelers who have conned, enabled, victimized or—yes—charmed you.
