Summary

David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives -- a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

  • I'm not sure what to say beyond this is classic Sedaris. Dry wit, off the wall humor and strange stories that you find yourself laughing at, then wonder if it was ok to laugh at it. Cross Steven Wright, Bob Newhart and Denis Leary and you have something approximating David Sedaris.
  • After thoroughly enjoying reading "Me Talk Pretty One Day," I was eager to get this audiobook and listen to the author for the first time. So I was initially surprised at how deadpan David Sedaris sounded. He seemed to read without feeling or attachment. Then, as I got used to it, I realized that it probably sounded just the way he had meant to write it. Things that seemed unbelievable, shocking, hilarious, and tragic to me were just facts of life for him. There was no need to insert my voice, or how I would have read it, into the narrative the same way I would have had I read the book. After that, I appreciated his dryness as a part of the experience and actually enjoyed having to listen a bit more carefully for the humor.
  • Gotta love him. As always, his first cut is his best. As Pema Chodrin says, you have to 'stay soft' when listening to him, but his books 'listen' far better than 'read'. I enjoyed the book and enjoy his mind.
