Me Talk Pretty One Day
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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. Sedaris is an amazing reader whose appearances draw hundreds, and his performancesincluding a jaw-dropping impression of Billie Holiday singing I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weinerare unforgettable. Sedariss essays on living in Paris are some of the funniest hes ever written. At last, someone even meaner than the French! The sort of blithely sophisticated, loopy humour that might have resulted if Dorothy Parker and James Thurber had had a love child.

I found nothing funny about this book.
As soon as he started being a drug addict and thought that was funny it ended for me. However even before that it was just boring.
I know others have seen something redemptive in this “book” for me it was a wast of 10.00 and time.
I love his and his sister's work with all my heart. Out of them both, this is my favorite book behind the Sedaris family.
