Naked by David Sedaris

First, I have to admit that I am a new fan of David Sedaris, I have arrived a little late to this train but at least I am on it!  

 

You know those creepy people that talk to themselves or laugh at nothing on the subway?  Pick up a David Sedaris book and you suddenly become one of those people, at least in this case you have a book to hide behind.

 

Naked is named after the last chapter of the book where he goes on vacation at a nudist colony, it is an interesting and provocative  book and I loved it!  Please dont be fooled.  The book doenst just offer side splitting laughter, Sedaris goes into detail about his families struggles and dealing with the death of his mother.  Oddly enough, my favorite quote from this book is during one of those serious moments.

 

“You can’t brace yourself for famine if you’ve never known hunger; it is foolish to even try.”  If you enjoy well written books, witty humor, and have come from a weird family (lets face it who hasnt?) then David is your man.
