Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim ★★★☆☆

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim - David Sedaris

Another fun collection of essays by Sedaris. I think my favorite, and most relatable, was the story of his mother locking the kids out of the house after days of being shut up together by snowstorms had driven her a little crazy. The author certainly doesn’t spare himself in examining the failings of human nature, but read in his own deadpan voice is somehow funny even when people are behaving very badly.

 

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive. As always, the reading by Sedaris is terrific.
