Reading Challenge Book Review #8

Oh, I am BEHIND on this reading challenge! 52 books was a serious undertaking...& here we are on review #8. Let's get straight to it. The category was "A Funny Book". So, David Sedaris. Who has read any of his books? I've always heard great things, but never got around to reading anything of his.  Well thanks to my dear friend Lauren who supplied me with this book at the last minute after I forgot to bring a book camping, I have a new author I LOVE.  His writing is funny & smart & completely captivating.  The entire book is a series of stories that completely kept my interest.  The only thing is  I slightly regret reading this book after I just finished Running with Scissors. Both authors have similar styles & often I'd get their stories a bit intertwined, so I don't think I got to fully appreciate David (we're on a first name basis now) but I definitely plan on reading some of this other stuff. Who has suggestions of books I must read?  As always, I stole the summary from goodreads, but it doesn't say much..which is kind of the point. Read it.

David Sedaris' move to Paris from New York inspired these hilarious pieces, including the title essay, about his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that "every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section"
