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.

Another humorous read by Sedaris
Great stories and one of my favorite collections.
Less humorous, but still Sedaris excellent
I got the book thinking it would be laugh out loud funny like Me Talk Pretty One Day. This book still made me laugh, but it is so incredibly personal and revealing that I found myself thinking about passages days after I read them. Highly recommended!
Great stories! So personal and so well written. And always very funny. Loved it.
