Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

Summary: David Sedaris uses his wit and humor to look at life through a different lens. His autobiographical essays are brimming with hilarious self-deprecation.

Review: After two serious books, I felt it was time for another installment of Sedaris. I read Calypso a few weeks ago and, not even a week later, I found myself on Better World Books loading my cart with several other of his works. (You know, to support world literacy and not just my insatiable book addiction!)

What I especially like about Sedaris' essays is his incredible way of looking at instances of, what normal people would define as, utter embarrassment and humiliation with a healthy dose of humor and self-deprecating enlightenment. His perspective is upbeat and sugary-sweet with a flare of ridiculousness. (No boggart stands a chance against him.)

Even after having a rough week, it was nice to come home, pick this up and have a good chuckle.

I would go into more, but I suggest you just get a copy and see for yourself.
