BOOK REVIEW

DRESS YOUR FAMILY IN CORDUROY AND DENIM
                              DAVID SEDARIS

This book consists of a collection of 22 essays about the author's life.  Some are about his professional life.  However, many of the essays are about his family life.  Some of the essays relate to the author's earlier times as a child and others are about his adult life.  Some of the essays are humorous while others are very serious.  You might even consider some of them a little "weird".  Most of the essays are very short.  I won't go into details about the essays for fear of giving too much away.  These you should read yourself.   

If you are not familiar with David Sedaris, this book is a good place to begin.  His writing is unique.  You will laugh at the author's wit.  He is able to take simple happenings in his life and turn them into essays that are very interesting and different to read. 

If you are looking for something a little different to read this summer, this is the book!  You should add this one to your reading list.  These essays are anything but boring!
