Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (2010)

I love everything else I've read by David Sedaris. This is really different. The dark side is significantly darker, to the extent that I reacted out loud to some of the violence in these stories. I like how they were sort of fable-like but the morals, if they have any, are not obvious. At first I...

Bestiole e bestiacce (2010)

I love Sedaris so much, I just grabbed this off the audio shelf at the library without reading about it. So, it is my own fault that I was surprised and a bit disappointed. This is not classic Sedaris musing on his life and providing direct social commentary. It is, however, social commentary, bu...

Holidays on Ice (1998)

My mother was a little crazy. She saw people looking through our windows, heard them whispering under our porch, spotted private family conversations in the newspaper, unexpectedly screamed profanity at people who looked suspicious (sometimes while we were in a restaurant or some other very publi...

Me Talk Pretty One Day (2015)

طنز جالبی که بی مزه نباشه ژانریه که تو محصولات فرهنگی داخلی کمتر بهش برخورد کردم و کمبودش رو همیشه حس میکنم و به ناچار برای تجربه ش سراغ سریالها و فیلم ها و کتابهای عمدتا امریکایی رفتم..ژانری که بخش زیادیش با مسائل فرهنگی همون جا آمیخته شدهشاید برای من قسمت زیادی از لذت کتاب،ناشی از خوندن متن اصل...

Barrel Fever (1995)

So, before I get into it, I will say that I very much enjoyed SantaLand, the radio-produced essay of Sedaris’s experiences working as an elf in Macy's, that won him the contract for this book of short stories. For the most part it was a series of skits in the shop detailing the painful and bizarr...

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (2004)

3.5/5Il punto della questione: Sedaris è davvero utile alla letteratura contemporanea?Okay, è come chiedersi se Scary Movie sia utile al cinema contemporaneo. No, non è utile, però si presuppone che abbia l'unico scopo di divertirti. Però davvero, se ad esempio io lo incrociasse per strada, non è...

SantaLand Diaries (2015)

The Santa land Diaries is a collection of six short stories written by the outrageously funny David Sedaris! The stories are from the perspective of David Sedaris when he takes the job as an elf at the Macy's Santa land in New York City. The stories are about his life as an elf during holiday sea...

When You Are Engulfed in Flames (2008)

Here's my take on Sedaris, or maybe my take on Sedaris before I listened to this book: Naked is easily his best work because it's his most thorough, his most unencumbered by his own fame. If we were to compare his oeuvre to MTV's The Real World, Naked is the original New York season (despite not...

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

He made this observation at the home of my cousin Joan, whom he and I visited just before Christmas one year, and it came on the heels of an equally aggressive comment. “Well,” he said, “David’s a better reader than he is a writer.” This from someone who hasn’t opened a book since Dave Stockton’s...

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris


Pimsleur, it’s called, and I first used it in 2006, when preparing for a trip to Japan. “I am American,” I was taught to announce, somewhat sheepishly, at the start of lesson one. Half an hour later, I’d advanced to 日本語がお上手ですね, which translates to “Your Japanese is so good!” It seemed a bit early...
