Barrel Fever

David Sedaris

4143

Reading Sedaris is  like accepting a ride from a stranger because he is headed in your general direction. You may end up someplace else, but the ride was worthwhile.

This book is divided into stories and essays. The stories are as weird as Sedaris’ thought process. The essays top out with the Santaland Diaries, a true account of his experiences as a Christmas elf at Macy’s.

Sedaris is an acquired taste, one that I enjoy immensely.  I like Stilton cheese, too.
