This was a short-story-licious vacation.
Sedaris has been writing for This American Life for a while now, and he's a real powerhouse when it comes to convincing people to be his adoring fans/loyal minions. Apparently he draws hundreds of people to his readings. My theory is he's planning a world takeover.
Luckily, he has a sense of humor. So dictatorial rule under Sedaris can't be worse than the current regimes.
This collection contains a number of vignettes from childhood and adulthood - funny and poignant.
I much enjoyed the ones about living in France and learning the language (or trying). They jibe with my own expat experience.
But, strangely, I can't think of much more to say.
They were funny. I enjoyed them. But....?
