Julie – Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

fullsizerender-1David Sedaris makes me laugh. Huge, gasping, uncontrollable laughter came out of me at regular intervals while I was reading this book for the first time 15 years ago. It was embarrassing when it happened in public. I spent the better part of a transatlantic flight receiving side-eye from all the passengers around me. No matter. The laughs were worth all the side-eye in the world and then some.

Pretty much all his other books have had similar effects on me, too. They are fabulous to read, and possibly even more fabulous to listen to as audiobooks read by Sedaris himself. And no Christmas season is complete without a reading of his tales of his stint as Crumpet the Elf.
