Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris - Powell's Books


Completely autobiographical and, as always, hilarious, Me Talk Pretty One Day is my favorite of all the David Sedaris collections. The first half of the book focuses on his childhood in North Carolina and his very unusual family; the second half details his move to Paris with his boyfriend Hugh. While in France, Sedaris prides himself on his refusal to learn any useful French — even though he has spent six summers plus two years in the country. He finally decides to devote himself to learning ten new words per day — and the words he chooses don't cease to surprise and amuse.
