“You could turn up your nose at the president or Coke or even God, but there were names for boys who didn‘t like sports.”

Ready to jump into this essay collection - looks funny and breezy, but still down-to-earth. I can tell I‘ll like it because the author is already calling out toxic masculinity and I‘m only on pg 5 ... 😂🗣🙇🏻‍♀️

rretzler I love Sedaris! The books are great, but there‘s nothing like the audiobooks read by Sedaris himself! Me Talk Pretty One Day is available on YouTube to listen. 1mo
ONH @rretzler oh wow! I‘ll definitely have to give that a listen, thanks for the rec 😎 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ After reading Zuckoff‘s amazing 9/11 book this week, I desperately needed something funny and comforting. And what‘s better than a favorite? This was my 3rd or 4th time reading this collection. Sedaris making fun of his French-learning process slays me every time.

cathipink This is my favorite Sedaris, and it's taking all that I have not to purchase the new cover editions. 1mo
krayoncolorz I‘ve never heard of this and I don‘t even know what to think. 1mo
britt_brooke @cathipink It‘s my favorite Sedaris, too! Calypso is a close second. 1mo

britt_brooke @krayoncolorz If you like dark humor, you‘d like Sedaris. He‘s a memoirist/essayist who often writes about his family. He‘s one of my favorites! No clue who that is on the cover, so don‘t let that throw you off. 😆 He‘s fabulous on audio. 1mo
cathipink I loved Calypso too 🙂 1mo

This book was funny, and I understand it‘s supposed to be funny essays, but I was expecting a little more of a connection between the stories. It, however, was a good book to pick up and read a chapter and put down.

I didn't love this one. Some of the stories were interesting, but overall they fell flat for me. I think that Sedaris probably is just not for me.

MaleficentBookDragon I'm right there will you. I don't get why he is so loved. I don't find him funny; he comes across as very mean spirited for me. And I HATED 4mo
cherinium @MaleficentBookDragon I also felt like his dry humor and sarcasm came off as mean. From this book, I definitely don't think he's someone I'd ever want to hang out with. Too egotistical and self righteous. 4mo

David Sedaris had me LMAO! 🤣😂🤣His deadpan delivery and astute observations were side splitting funny. I‘m not sure if living overseas makes me feel an instant kinship but I wept while listening to him tackle his French class lessons & eavesdropping on American tourists. He‘s the Greek Orthodox Jerry Seinfeld. Highly recommend the audio 🎧

AmyG I just love him. I think my favorite is his grandmother. She cracks me up. (edited) 5mo

⭐️5/5 Took me a minute to get use to the short stories, but I loved his style, his voice for the audio, and the humor in the stories. Definitely recommend.

Book_Gobbler He‘s a genius! And seeing him live - SO highly recommended. Incredible. 📖 5mo

Whenever my husband hears my audiobooks, he always asks why I listen to the exact same person over and over again. Usually he‘s just crazy, but I would say he has become familiar with Sedaris‘s voice, given how often I listen to his audiobooks. 😂 This one focuses on Sedaris‘s move to France and is just as funny as his others.

I think I gave this a fair chance, as I am on page 96, but I am just not enjoying this book at all. I‘ve resolved to abandon more books in 2019, which may seem like a strange resolution, but I need to stop wasting time on things like this. Life‘s too short. I‘d have no problem turning off a movie I wasn‘t enjoying. I need to better extend that to closing the book.

Bookishlie I know what you mean. I give every book 50 to 100 pages and then I bail if I'm not feeling it. 8mo
TiredLibrarian Not a strange resolution at all. I find it very freeing. Too many good books out there to waste time with the bad, or those that just aren't right for you right now. 👍🏻💜 8mo

I‘m back to reading after a long dry spell. 2018 has been a rough and different year for me. I coped by escaping into online gaming for a few months. But the spell has been broken and my reading self is back!

I‘d never heard of David Sedaris until a couple of years ago, then I saw his name all over the bookish internet. After reading this (listening to it ) I get it now! The guy is funny. Self deprecating but also happily owning his human foibles, he‘s the kind of comic writer you can imagine befriending and inviting to dinner. I especially loved the mish mash sentences he comes out with in his beginners French while living in Paris.

Why did I wait this long to pick up this gem of a book?! I am so glad I did though. Because it had me shaking my head, almost crying with laughter, and nodding along with a stunned expression on my face. The stories hook you in. The way they are told are both ruthlessly self-deprecating and incredibly imaginative. Please read this book. You will come away altered, but in a good way. #nospoilers #recommended #funandeducational #moreplease ❤️

Samplergal Loved this one! 12mo
ruskigurl16 @Samplergal have you read anything else by him? If you have, what do you recommend I try next? 12mo
Samplergal I have and they all pale in comparison. I will be listening to Calypso which I have heard great things about. His Naked and Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim were both good. 12mo

Sedaris is witty and I couldn‘t help but chuckle throughout the first part of the book! That being said the second half didn‘t really hold my attention making this just an ok read for me - although I absolutely adored his newest release Calypso. Hoping to find his next book on audio as I hear his stories are even better with him narrating. 3.5 ☆

DarcysMom I exclusively choose audio for him. I think a lot of the humor and charm would be lost without his voice. 13mo
tammysue @DarcysMom A little sad to find we don‘t carry it on this particular book. (edited) 13mo
