David Sedaris has an entertaining perspective on life and can be especially endearing if your dad is of Greek ancestry, if you like France and its capital and if you are sympathetic to the gay experience. While I wouldn't pass this book on to my daughters or mother for fear they would think I have a sick sense of humor, I will recommend to my husband and other male and female adult friends.

This book contains my very favorite Dave Sedaris story, "Six to Eight Black Men." While the rest of the stories are wonderfully funny and always well-written, you should read this book if for no other reason than that story, "Six to Eight Black Men."

On a separate note, in order to fully enjoy a David Sedaris book, I recommend getting a book on tape/CD from your library or here, etc. and listening to a couple stories. David Sedaris reads all of his books on tape himself, and his unique voice makes the stories EVEN BETTER. Once you hear his voice in a couple stories, you will forever hear his voice as you read his books, making the experience even more enjoyable.

Some of this is amusing, some is pretty raw. Some is a little of both! LOL

MR. SEDARIS STRIKES AGAIN
If you think you have a weird family, do yourself a favor and read this author's books. You'll never complain again. This is a genuine poster family for dysFUNctional. I've read all Mr. Sedaris' books and never fail to be amazed that his family still talks to him.

OK, but I laughed aloud constantly while reading Me Talk Pretty One Day, and this book only had one chapter that really had me rolling...
