The Best of Me by David Sedaris
Item # 9780316628242
product description For the first time collected in one volume, David Sedaris brings us his funniest and most memorable work. In The Best of Me by David Sedaris, the author shops for rare taxidermy, hitchhikes with a lady quadriplegic, and spits a lozenge into a fellow travelerÕs lap. He drowns a mouse in a bucket, struggles to say Ògive it to meÓ in five languages, and hand-feeds a carnivorous bird. In these pages, Sedaris explores falling in love and staying together, recognizing his own aging not in the mirror but in the faces of his siblings, losing one parent and coming to termsÑat long lastÑwith the other. Taken together, the stories in TheBest of Me reveal the wonder and delight Sedaris takes in the surprises life brings him. No experience, he sees, is quite as he expectedÑitÕs often harder, more fraught, and certainly weirderÑbut sometimes it is also much richer and more wonderful.
