David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives -- a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.


  • Don't listen to those two idiot reviews!

    While David Sedaris may be gay, his books aren't explicitly for gay people. I'm a straight guy, and there is little that made me uncomfortable. Since his books are essays about things that happened in his life, of course there's going to be stories that deal with gay issues. But for the most part, his essays are stories everyone can relate to.

    If you are new to David you are in for a treat! If not this is the same sarcastic and pointed David we know and love.
