A world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today davidsedarisbooksc. I thought I was over David Sedaris I don't mean that I don't like him I do His essays are funny but after a while they all seem to run together He mines the same territory again and again stories of growing up with his dysfunctional uirky yet lovable family Stories of himself as the odd and awkward kid growing up and trying to figure out how to live in this worldI wasn’t going to buy Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim in print but I saw the audio version read by Sedaris himself on sale at CompUSA when they were going out of business and selling their entire inventory for cheap I couldn’t resist even though I much prefer to read books rather than to listen to them I did nothing with it for than a year until I decided I should listen to it while going for walks around my neighborhoodI found myself rolling my eyes not laughing and uickly becoming bored Finally I had the idea to take the book with me when I drove places I felt I would get through it much uicker that way and could finally move on to something elseIt turned out that that was the way to listen to David Sedaris Walking around the neighborhood while thinking about the pain in my hip and how at 38 years old I’m afraid I’m going to have to have a fucking hip replacement is no way to appreciate him I just wanted to slap the shit out of him and his idiosyncratic familyneighborsand everyone else he was talking about Relaxed and driving on the freeway with his pleasant voice in my ear was the way to go In fact I enjoyed it so much that it made me want to listen to his books rather than read them which was kind of a first for meThat being said it’s not going to come as a big surprise that this collection is of the same types of stories we’ve heard in the past but I have to say that Sedaris really shines when he talks about his sister Tiffany and his brother Paul aka The Rooster Those were my favorites in the collection I was also sad to learn that Sedaris’s mother Sharon has passed away I’ll never forget his Ya Ya refusing to call Sharon by her name and stubbornly referring to her as “The Girl” because she was pissed she wasn’t Greek And if you already know and love The Rooster man are you in for a treat when Sedaris reads in Paul’s voice Something about this charming well spoken man saying the words “She had tubes coming out of her pussy” in a thick southern accent cracked me up than reading it on the page ever could

David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters He goes on vacation with his family He gets a job selling drinks He attends his brother’s wedding He mops his sister’s floor He gives directions to a lost traveler He eats a hamburger He has his. Sedaris isn´t for everyone because his weird and disturbing tales are no humor easy to laugh about because it involves many dark and black comedy elements some indirect social criticism and coarse scenes often dealing with topics that are against the code of conduct of acceptable targets I like it the mini humor tales are perfect for in between whenever one doesn´t want to exhaust oneself with reading something complex or of high uality with full focus on enjoying the art the perfect stopgap I would really like to know how much of it is authentic and what just exaggerated or fictional because I could truly imagine super sized families acting in a Malcolm in the Middle or Married with kids style or whatever sitcoms taught us about it And not to forget there are hardly satirical authors that mostly write short stories and articles for magazines it are mostly novels and these are often so interwoven deep and complex that it isn´t easy to get the whole package out of the first read If someone tries it and doesn´t like 2 or 3 stories I would suggest not to continue because they are all uite similar mini plots around happenings fueled by the author´s real and fictional experiences There is so much truth about the fact that each dysfunctional sad and broken family is destroying each others lives in a uniue way and Sedaris´ humor is nourished with the darkness and pain hidden behind the broken veneers of many seemingly happy families I am often thinking that people have the completely wrong idea that easygoing humorous texts aren´t hard to write and already second uestion in this review I would be interested to know how many edits Sedaris needs until his small diamonds sprinkle like glass cutting and torturing anyone of his protagonists Being funny is one of the hardest things no matter how trivial dirty and cheap it might seem and how Sedaris uses his homosexuality for laughs in the same way Woody Allen does it with Judaismhttpstvtropesorgpmwikipmwikiphis hilarious A perfect description of the struggle of being gay and finding identity in a sadly still intolerant and homophobic world tooTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue
