Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris was HILARIOUS!!!!!! (Yes, lots of exclamation points!!!) I laughed out loud so many times! I did not read the back of the book and actually thought I was borrowing a totally different type of book, perhaps about someone new to America? My mind went everywhere but where the book went! This is a memoir, of sorts, about David’s life. They way he describes himself (very self deprecating), his family (beyond funny) and friends was so humorous! This was a quick and funny read and I would totally recommend reading it. If you do, let me know what you think!
Goodreads describes the book:
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.
