If you like David Sedaris.....

by PeggyO on May 6, 2010

you'll love this one! Typical DS essays about his everyday life (Hah!), his quirky friends, etc., told in his usual dry style, with just a twist of snide.

If you like David Sedaris' other work, this one won't disappoint. He just get's funnier and more relate-able with age. Will read it again.

If you liked "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" you will enjoy this book. Essays are about later period of authors life.


Flaming Success

David Sedaris just gets better with age, like a fine French wine I am sure he can't pronounce! This collection contains my favorite story about spiders, another about creepy presents and of course the tale of quitting smoking in Japan. Only Sedaris would pick a smoker's paradise in which to quit.
