Anyone that has read NAKED and BARREL FEVER, or heard David Sedaris speaking live or on the radio will tell you that a new collection from him is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris from New York inspired these hilarious new pieces, including 'Me Talk Pretty One Day', about his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that 'every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section'. His family is another inspiration. 'You Can't 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 of food and cashiers with six-inch fingernails.

Truly brilliant humorist, I throughly enjoyed listening and re-listening to this audiobook. I would recommend to all who enjoy a little cynicism along with their humour.
If you have a sense of humour this is not for you. I don't know why people are raving about this book. I think I smiled twice throughout the whole thing. Very disappointed.
