    A new collection from David Sedaris is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris has inspired hilarious pieces, including Me Talk Pretty One Day, about his attempts to learn French. His family is another inspiration. You Cant Kill the Rooster is a portrait of his brother who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers and cashiers with 6-inch fingernails. Compared by The New Yorker to Twain ...

Funniest Book Ever

by Joy O on Jan 3, 2013

This is the funniest book that I think I have ever read. I still laugh when I think of some of the passages in the book - like the part where the author is learning French. This is "laugh-out-loud" humor at its best!

Funny but Crude

by piafinn on Jul 8, 2011

This is a series of essays about random topics, observations of life and people surrounding the author. He is very insightful, observant and funny. He describes situations so well, I was laughing out loud. His descriptions of his time in France and his attempts at the language were especially funny. However, some of the book is just plain crude, which detracts from his otherwise witty writing.

Very Funny

by briC on Dec 17, 2009

Sedaris is a very subtle humourist. Little by little he gets under your skin. A grin grows to a smile, a chuckle and a laugh. And then you keep laughing. Be careful reading this in public places; people may look!

A book hilarious and at the same time very serious under the humor A good read, covering parents with very definite ideals and goals for their chilrdren while functioning in a dysfunctional manner, and main character who manages not to meet those goals by any means possible.

Me Not Amused

by daibach on Aug 15, 2008

I read the reviews and bought the book three weeks ago. I still haven't finished it. I found it unsophisticated and laboured and certainly not appealing to my sense of humour which tunes in to the writings of Alan Coren and Clive James. Sorry but Me No Like.
