Fiction: Essays

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris

I was going to say that my initial reaction to this book compared to the other one was that these essays were a bit more sad. Not, like, crying-sad, but, wow, life is really depressing sometimes when you’re not looking-sad. Except that I can easily think of two things that made me laugh really hard. Outloud. Late at night. If my neighbors now think I’m crazy and decide to call me…Laughy McLateatnight (look closely and it’ll make sense), it is David Sedaris’ fault.

So, I suppose the one-line review of this book would be:

More pitch-perfect writing from a master of memoirist humor.

My rating: A-
