David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives -- a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

Good but hoping for more
September 27th, 2015
This is a story of the quirky family David Sedaris grew up with and how it made him the person he is today. He has a crazy family that is described with some very interesting and fun stories. I did find some of the stories to be frustrating to the point where I wanted to shake him and some of his family/friends. The things they would say. The numbness are easy to relate to and inevitably you will relate to at least one of the stories in this book. I've heard this isn't one of the better books by David Sedaris. I cannot compare since is the fist book of his I've read, but I do plan on giving some of his other books a chance since I've heard great things about them. I'd love to read what your opinion is on David Sedaris and what books you might recommend after reading Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim. The final rating for this book is a 3/5.
