David Sedaris has been compared to Twain, one of the greatest satirists of all time. Just as Stephenie Meyer has been compared to Jane Austen, you would expect the Sedaris/Twain connection to be over the top. Surely, he cannot be that funny.
Well, you’re wrong, you stupid bitch.
David Sedaris shows funny what’s funny, and I cannot recommend anything he’s ever written highly enough. Just a sample of the glory:
“If you’re looking for sympathy you’ll find it between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.”
“We were not a hugging people. In terms of emotional comfort it was our belief that no amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well made cocktail.”
“Shit is the tofu of cursing and can be molded to whichever condition the speaker desires. Hot as shit. Windy as shit. I myself was confounded as shit…”
“Sometimes the sins you haven’t committed are all you have left to hold onto.”
It’s all that good. Go buy his wondrous creations.
