Staff Reviews

David! I love you! Please adopt me into your quirky life and take me along on all of your misadventures. No one can make me laugh out loud the way you do; not just a chuckle but a belly roll that wakes up my neighbors in the middle of the night because I cannot put this book down.

— Christy


Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the mania for memoir on its ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview-a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course!) with a quadriplegic companion; a family gathers for a wedding in the face of imminent death. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without doubt one of the freshest in American writing.
