2 Sentence Review: Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

August 13, 2010

When the more avid lit fan thinks of David Sedaris, they tend to think of writing that floors them with laughter, products of his caustic wit and sophisticated humor, traits that people have started to take for granted in Sedaris’s work, especially when they review his book “Me Talk Pretty One Day” as “his most sidesplitting work to date…” (Sarah  Hepola, Austin Chronicle).

In this collection of short stories about his more troubling times in life – his time as a meth addict, his life in France, coming to terms with his homosexuality, and his family affairs – Sedaris maintains his underlying wit but he leaves us with innate truths about love, family, and foreign affairs rather than simply stitches in our sides.
