29: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

by David Sedaris

another late comer!

this has got to be one of the most depressing books that i’ve ever read on Americana life.

I have read David Sedaris’ work before, well only engulf your families in flame which came out later than this one right here… it’s another set of essays about his family. See how the word family is used in both titles?

there’s a sticker that says ‘laugh out loud’ stuck on the cover of the book, by the library no less to inform me of its hilarity, hilarity will ensue and you better laugh out loud.

oh god.

david sedaris is a great writer, and it’s very funny at times, i’ve laughed, out , loud, SEVERAL occasions.

but for some reason, most of it left me feeling depressed, which is a feeling that i felt at the end of his engulf your families in flames. funny too, but also…very..depressing.

i don’t know why but man, growing up is hard.
