Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk
A Modest Bestiary
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.
In "The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck," three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In "Hello Kitty," a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In "The Squirrel and the Chipmunk," a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members.
With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children's books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.
The beginning of this book was awesome bit torwards the middle of it, it just gets really weird. I'd lower the price alittle
Probably the last Sedaris book I'll buy.
I really used to enjoy reading David Sedaris. His writing was funny and poignant at the same time. I began to raise my eyebrows with his last book, I just didn't find any of it funny. This 21st century take on Aesop's fables is, at times, mildly amusing and to me makes no points other than the obvious ones and does so without recognizable humor.
