Book: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Wicked Bestiary

Having read David Sedaris’ Me Talk Pretty One Day a couple of years ago, and seen the author at two separate live readings over the years, I was looking forward to reading this book. Be warned – despite the illustrations throughout, this is by no means a children’s book. The trademark prose is certainly there, and you’ll see moments of genius in there, but what’s missing is the redemptive quality of the story – the endings of some stories make you wince, which means they’re not as enjoyable as some of his other work. One for the fans.
