Book: Me Talk Pretty One Day

Book: Me Talk Pretty One Day

Popular writer David Sedaris (we actually went to see him at the State Theatre a couple of weeks ago) put together this New York Times bestseller; it’s a range of short essays, based on observations from his life and childhood, and – in the second half – from his attempts to learn French, in France, from a teacher who freely admits that she hates him.

Though his sense of humour and choice of subject matter will not be to everyone’s taste, I found his writing to be tight, and – on occasion – laugh-out-loud funny.
