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.
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.
