If the New Yorker could start offering a podcast of David Sedaris reading his work, that would be great. Until then, we will just have to read them the old fashion way.
“Fuck you, Sloppy Nobody, for making me turn my head.” I feel like I have uttered those exact lines on countless occasions at any number of places. Resturants, bars, public forums, sports games. The funny thing is that usuallly when I am the person saying this I too am a sloppy nobody just lounging around with a undeserving sense of self importance (well not that undeserving, actually a pretty legitimate sense of self worth)
Not only is Sedaris very funny but he may well be one of the best writers around. I swear the guy has the amazing gift to make any situation into something worth reading, thinking about, and enjoying all at the same time.
