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.

Stumbled upon gem
Maybe I've been under a rock, but I just stumbled upon this book. One of the funniest books I've read in a long time. I would recommend this to anyone with a sense of humor. Even if you don't have one, I'd recommend it anyway - maybe it'll give you a sense of humor.
Everything David Sedaris writes is brilliant, but this is his best. Refreshingly honest, hilarious & yet, deep.
Definitely not a traditional story. Each chapter seems to take itself into a short rant or rave about something pretty interesting. I liked it. Breaks the mold of a traditional book or story.
