Yukking It Up With David Sedaris

Saturday Samplers will be laughing and scratching this Saturday, July 10th, as we meet to discuss the humor of David Sedaris.  Our chosen book is Me Talk Pretty One Day, but the group is welcome to share their own favorites by the author as well as other humorists.  For instance, I really had a laugh riot over another Sedaris book, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and look forward to more recommendations.  Here are some short interviews featuring the author's offbeat humor as well as the issue of comic exaggeration.

I recently read (on Audio) the book "I Shudder" by Paul Rudnick. He reminded me of David Sedaris more than any other writer. So, if you like David, you should like Paul. The book is a series of vignettes about his life, with an interspersed narrative that is bitingly satirical.
