Naked is a combination of short stories and essays. The short stories are not really my favorite - most of them are rather grim and they don't work very well. The essays, though, are about Sedaris' life, and while they also can be grim, they have energy and interest. I guess Sedaris is just one of those people whose life is stranger than fiction. Or more interesting, anyway. My favorite essay in the book is the last one - the eponymous "Naked," about Sedaris' sojourn in a nudist camp. Extremely funny.
