His Funniest Book! - Great Amazon Impulse buy!, 4 Aug 2005
Elegantly written and utterly hilarious, "Me Talk Pretty One Day" will have you laughing page after page. In 'Smart Guy' my favorite essay, Sedaris takes an IQ test with Mensa. He is crushed when he receives the results. This is the type of book where you end up having great empathy with the writer. Sedaris portrays himself as a kind of weakling, a loser, but in reading this book you realize he is anything BUT a loser. A wonderful purchase. I'm very happy. Another enjoyable Amazon pick I need to recommend is "The Losers' Club" by Richard Perez, also funny and thoughtful.
