Me Talk Pretty One Day, by David Sedaris

Regular price $4.99

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. His family is another inspiration. You Can't Kill the Rooster is a portrait of his brother, who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers of food and cashiers with six-inch fingernails.

Used. Good condition. Some wear and tear. Medium damage to the spine, front cover, corners, and spine. High shelf wear to the bottom of the book. Price marked in pencil.
