Me Talk Pretty One Day Kindle Edition
Customers who bought this item also bought
Audaciously combining memoir, essay, and what has to be fiction, this fourth collection of short pieces offers pleasures normally to be found only in the best novels and the rare standup act that is actually funny.
He is, simply, very funny... refusing to find anything an unfit subject for humour.
A sophisticatedly funny take on modern life. Treat yourself to this book.

His books are not the kind that will appeal to everyone. But if you like his books, you will really like them. Sedaris writes about ordinary, everyday things. He seems to be of the opinion that nothing is too small to write about.
Now about Me Talk Pretty One Day, there is a lot here that I liked and some that I couldn't bring myself to read all the way through. But on the whole, I enjoyed it.
There are stories here about growing up gay in the 1970's and trying desperately to fit in, dreaming of being an artist, becoming a drug addict, living in New York, the weirdness of modern, experimental cuisine, living in France and struggling to learn the language and so on.
Some of the stories are warm and engaging, some are funny, some of them made my heart ache...and then there are others that I wish he'd never written. They seemed a bit pointless, to be honest.
But on the whole, I liked it.
