Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
I guess I'm the opposite of most people. I read Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (2004) first, then When You're Engulfed in Flames(2008) and now I'm reading Me Talk Pretty One Day (2000).
I didn't read the first book first, I read the middle book first and the last book second, now I'm reading the oldest book. So I guess I'm a little mixed up but it doesn't matter which order you read the books in, they're all good and they all stand alone.
There is a lot of humor in each of these short essays, although some might think it's a little twisted. So, I guess twisted goes well with mixed up.
Me Talk Pretty One Day is an especially good book for anyone studying a new language. If you've read any of David's books, add your comments here.
