About this deal

I’m currently on a wait list for the next audio that becomes available through my fine library system. I might reinvent myself to strangers, but to this day, as far as my family is concerned, I’m still the one most likely to set your house on fire. But he and his boyfriend moved to France, thereby achieving automatic outsider status, and Sedaris was able to mine this for comedy gold (his accounts of misadventures while learning French are truly funny, and credit must be given for the way in which he makes the comedy seem so effortless).

With a childhood right out of The Virgin Suicides--you'd think it was about the only book I've ever read based on how much I'm referencing it lately--what's not to love? When my sisters and I eventually left home, it seemed like a natural progression–young adults shifting from one environment to another. I attributed their behavior to the fact that they didn't have a TV, but television didn't teach you everything. Now I just have to deal with a cat who is terrified of Santa’s impending visit after hearing the story of “6 to 8 Black Men”. Seven hours and this entire book completed later, my family got to experience the least healthy shark cootchie board in the history of the world .This is a man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake. And, based on the enormous amount of accumulated goodwill from his earlier books, I don't begrudge DS his commercial success. Thanks to the combo of some sort of sinus condition/basement dust I lugged upstairs along with the decorations, I laughed until I was overtaken by an emphysema-ish coughing fit/wheeze that may or may not have concluded with me urinating a bit on myself - and if THAT isn’t an endorsement, I don’t know what is. Sedaris's four sisters move in and out of these essays like a modern Greek chorus, and every time they appear, I am reduced to an attack of adolescent giggles. What an added pleasure to hear David’s voice as he relates what would seem at first like mundane occurrences transformed into hilarious anecdotes.

The essays address the author's upbringing in Raleigh, North Carolina, his relationships with family members, and his work and life in New York City and France. Raised in North Carolina, he has worked as a housecleaner and most famously, as a part-time elf for Macy's.ECONOMIST ― 'Sedaris is like an updated Thurber: domestic, laconic, slightly warped but never bitter, and extremely funny.

Not those," I pleaded, but rather than words, my mouth expelled chocolate, chewed chocolate, which fell onto the sleece of her sweater. It's not that I don't like her - far from it - I just worry that, without a regular job and the proper linoleum, she'll fall through a crack and disappear to a place where we can't find her.I heard the singular sound of boot against crystallized meat and listened as my brother panted for breath. It seems like Sedaris can’t stand still, or maybe this was from another book; they all run together.
