Me Talk Pretty One Day

Me Talk Pretty One Day

"Consistently hilarious and unapologetic, David Sedaris provides a unique and comical way of describing every day and not so every day occurrences. Any of his books are a safe bet but Me Talk Pretty One Day is the perfect introduction to his many great collections of quirky autobiographical essays."

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 and Hawthorne, Sedaris has become one of our best-loved authors.
