Staff Pick of the Week: “Me Talk Pretty One Day” by David Sedaris

Genre: Autobiography, Humor Writing, Life Stories

Read-Alikes:
Half Empty by David Rakoff
Vacationland by John Hodgeman
But Enough About You by Christopher Buckley

“David Sedaris’ move to Paris from New York inspired these hilarious pieces, including the title essay, about his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section. His family is another inspiration. You Can’t 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 of food and cashiers with six-inch fingernails.” -Goodreads.com
