A truly entertaining book, "Me Talk Pretty One Day" is Sedaris's autobiographical commentary on life in the rural south as well as what it's like to be an American living abroad. The latter aspect, with its florid description's of the author's existence in France, among its very structured traditions, makes the book almost like a primer for those that wish to travel to the Gaelic country. Sedaris also delves into his life as a young man, discovering himself as a person and as a writer. His "run-ins" with his father are hilarious and poignant.
