    [synopsis] => A new collection from David Sedaris is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris has inspired hilarious pieces, including 'Me Talk Pretty One Day', about his attempts to learn French. His family is another inspiration. 'You Can't Kill the Rooster' is a portrait of his brother who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers and cashiers with 6-inch fingernails. Compared by The New Yorker to Twain and Hawthorne, Sedaris has become one of our best-loved authors. Sedaris is an amazing reader whose appearances draw hundreds, and his performances including a jaw-dropping impression of Billie Holiday singing 'I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner' are unforgettable. Sedariss essays on living in Paris are some of the funniest he's ever written. At last, someone even meaner than the French! The sort of blithely sophisticated, loopy humour that might have resulted if Dorothy Parker and James Thurber had had a love child.
