Synopses & Reviews
David Sedaris's new collection tells a most unconventional life story.
It begins with a North Carolina childhood filled with speech therapy classes
and unwanted guitar lessons taught by a midget. From budding performance
artist to "clearly unqualified" writing teacher in Chicago, Sedaris's career
finally leads him to Paris which poses a number of challenges, chief among
them his inability to speak the language. Sedaris brings a view and a voice
like no other to every unforgettable encounter.
