Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
Me Talk Pretty One Day is a collection of essays about different parts of David Sedaris’s life. From speech therapy in elementary school to living in Paris with his boyfriend Hugh, David Sedaris takes you on a hilarious journey through his life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars, but it was really worth 4.5 out of 5 stars. Sedaris’s tone in some of the most hilarious stories was priceless. He points out ridiculous discrimination in a way that makes it funny. His essay topics range from bathroom humor to cultural prejudice. The book is divided into two parts, the first is his about his life before he met Hugh and moved to Paris, while the second part is about his life in Paris and learning French. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good laugh and anyone who likes memoirs.
