I’m a HUGE fan of David Sedaris and his newest collection didn’t disappoint. While this one had a little bit more of a “grown-up” tone to it (vs. Me Talk Pretty One Day), his sense of humor and observation is just as sharp as ever. Pace yourself, though – it flies by and you don’t definitely don’t want to miss a single joke or subtle punchline!— Courtney
