Me Talk Pretty One Day (2000)
What is the book about?
A recent transplant to Paris, humorist David Sedaris, bestselling author of “Naked," presents a collection of his strongest work yet, including the title story about his hilarious attempt to learn French. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Sedaris has become one of America 's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
