Me Talk Pretty One Day

Me Talk Pretty One Day (2000) is a David Sedaris autobiography, and it knows it. Its scattershot vignettes ooze with whimsical Americana, mirroring his turns on NPR’s This American Life. Creative nonfiction is spiced with a sense of humor that crosses into weirdness but skirts discomfort. Sedaris narrates diverting fluff stories ranging from his childhood speech therapy sessions to his sojourn in France with his partner (cue hilarious attempts to learn French). Nothing special here–just light entertainment for idle moments.
