Beschreibung von Audible

David Sedaris makes me cry. He makes me laugh so hard I sprout tears and my sides cramp, and then, out of the blue, he socks me in the gut with genuine angst, and I just want to stop laughing and really cry, but I can't because there he goes again with some glib observation about Oscar Meyer weiners. (Kirsten, Editor)

Inhaltsangabe

David Sedaris' new collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. It begins with a North Carolina childhood filled with speech-therapy classes ("There was the lisp, of course, but more troubling than that was my voice itself, with its excitable tone and high, girlish pitch") and unwanted guitar lessons taught by a midget. From budding performance artist ("The only crimp in my plan was that I seemed to have no talent whatsoever") to "clearly unqualified" writing teacher in Chicago, Sedaris' career leads him to New York City and eventually, of all places, France. His move to Paris poses a number of challenges, chief among them his inability to speak the language. Arriving a "spooky man-child" capable of communicating only through nouns, he undertakes language instruction that leads him ever deeper into cultural confusion. Whether describing the Easter bunny to puzzled classmates or watching a group of men play soccer with a cow, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter.

Kritikerstimmen

"At his best, he makes you laugh out loud, which indeed may be worth the price of admission." (The New York Times)

"Sedaris' deadpan delivery is the perfect foil to the bizarre in his latest collection of essays.."
