Me Talk Pretty One Day Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new collection from David Sedaris is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris has inspired hilarious pieces, including Me Talk Pretty One Day, about his attempts to learn French. His family is another inspiration. You Cant 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 and cashiers with 6-inch fingernails. Compared by The New Yorker to Twain and Hawthorne, Sedaris has become one of our best-loved authors. Sedaris is an amazing reader whose appearances draw hundreds, and his performancesincluding a jaw-dropping impression of Billie Holiday singing I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weinerare unforgettable. Sedariss essays on living in Paris are some of the funniest hes ever written. At last, someone even meaner than the French! The sort of blithely sophisticated, loopy humour that might have resulted if Dorothy Parker and James Thurber had had a love child. Entertainment Weekly on Barrel Fever Sidesplitting Not one of the essays in this new collection failed to crack me up; frequently I was helpless. The New York Times Book Review on Naked

Synopsis:

Compared by The New Yorker to Twain and Hawthorne, David Sedaris has become one of the best-loved humorists of our time, writing with perfect pitch about the ludicrousness of our age. His new collection features his strongest work yet. His recent move to Paris inspired several classic tales, including the title story, "Me Talk Pretty One Day", about his hilarious attempts to learn French. His family is another source of humor, inspiring "You Can't Kill the Rooster", a portrait of a brother who talks incessant hip-hop to his bewildered father. Featuring some pieces that have never been published and many that have appeared on National Public Radio, in The New Yorker, and Esquire, this is a hilarious collection that shouldn't be missed.
