In Naked, David Sedaris's message alternately rendered in Fakespeare, Italian, Spanish, and pidgin Greek is the same: pay attention to me.
Whether he's taking to the road with a thieving quadriplegic, sorting out the fancy from the extra-fancy in a bleak fruit-packing factory, or celebrating Christmas in the company of a recently paroled prostitute, this collection of memoirs creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behavior in A Plague of Tics to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the mirrored sunglasses of a lunatic. At this soulful and moving moment, he picks potato chip crumbs from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means.
This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong search for identity, leaving him both under suspicion and overdressed.

David Sedaris is an author who was introduced to me by my best friend who gave me a annotated copy of "Me Talk Pretty One Deay" as a birthday gift & since then I've read & re-read everything he's written & wish there was more. Of his books "Naked" is my absolute favorite never before has any author been able to make me laugh out loud, need to smoke a cigarette & cry all in one collection of essays. Sedaris is the greatest writer n humorist of our time & gives such an incredibly personal look into every area of his life like no other author can. I've actually had the opportunity to go to one of his readings & if u ever get the chance I guarantee you will not be disappointed - not only was the lecture/reding hilarious & entertaining but afterwards he took the time to stay & not only sign a book for ea. & every person who was there but interact with & ask everyone questions which I was not expecting.
Interesting for the first ten pages
Don't bother....unless you like painfully slow reads about nothing in particular.
I completely loved this book and laughed the whole time!!
