Me talk pretty one day
by Sedaris, David.
Format: Book
Summary: 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 Can't Kill the Rooster" is a portrait of his brother who talks incessant hiphop 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.-- And he's an NPR star. Sedaris's commentaries and observations are featured regularly on NPR, and he remains a top correspondent for Ira Glass's series "This American Life."-- Sedaris is an amazing reader whose appearances draw hundreds, and his performances -- including a jaw-dropping impression of Billie Holiday singing "I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner" -- are unforgettable.-- Sedaris's essays on living in Paris are some of the funniest he's ever written. At last, someone even meaner than the French!
