Me Talk Pretty One Day, David Sedaris / by Christina Rosalie

Dry, sarcastic humor, sometimes overdone (especially the part about drug use and 'art as life'). This is a memoir that deals with cultural and sexual labels. Written in a series of vignettes about different groups of people & ideas in different geographical locations, Sedaris celebrates people who dare to be themselves (such as his wacky sister who is always dressing up as someone else, or his father who hoards old food). This is a book that left me smiling, though I felt it was slightly alien to the fabric of my life.
