Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

Sedaris, David - Finished Feb 23, 2016

Run-on Sentence Summary

David Sedaris relates a series of funny anecdotes from his life, exploring his familiar themes of family and being an outsider.


I like Sedaris because his stories are so small and bizarre and endearing, but often posses a poignant and powerful subtext. He has mastery over his own voice, and his writing is tight and hilarious through self awareness and deprecation.

Final Thoughts

If you like Sedaris you’ll like it. I don’t think it was his best book, but it was still a fun read. Pick it up at the beach.
