ITEM#: 2504520Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the mania for memoir on its ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview-a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course!) with a quadriplegic companion; a family gathers for a wedding in the face of imminent death. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without doubt one of the freshest in American writing.

This volume should come with a warning : Do not read this book in quiet public places, as your loud chortles and guffaws will startle surrounding people. Sedaris continues to examine his life with unblinking and sometimes unflattering clarity. His characterizations of his family and friends are spot-on funny, and often wrenchingingly bitter.Read More
