sedaris_davidPlot: David Sedaris, a humorist and writer, presents a compilation of comical personal essays in Me Talk Pretty One Day. The essays are strung together with Sedaris’s candid manner and a persistent language theme. The book is divided into two parts, and with a few exceptions, focuses on the early part of Sedaris’s life in the first half, and the more recent years of his life while living in France in the second half.

I have read several of David Sedaris’s books…I had mixed feelings about this book.  I found some chapters/stories hilarious, and some rather dull.  Sedaris writes his books as a collection of short comical essays, which I love because you can read a short story/chapter each night before bed – perfect!  

I wouldn’t recommend this book above my favorites by Sedaris…I highly recommend Naked and Holidays On Ice – fantastic!  I would give this book 2.5/5 stars.
