David Sedaris - My Impression

David Sedaris is a funny guy.

That was my impression after reading Me Talk Pretty One Day and I thought it even more after Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and then I was sure when I read When You’re Engulfed in Flames but I'm convinced after hearing him holler, "Obama! Obama! Obama!" as he talked about politics in America and France, on Wednesday night--in person at Powell’s--in Beaverton. The guy is a quick-wit, who can think fast on his feet while getting the audience to applaud and laugh, even while standing for hours in an over-crowded bookstore, waiting . . .

He said he didn’t like pictures, or I would have some for this post. I love to take photos but I wanted to respect his wishes, since he was sharing his stories and reading to us—for free. Of course I had to buy another one of his books and then I waited like an hour to get it autographed. Now, I have an autographed Sedaris book. :)

It was a fun night but when I got home I was so tired and I wasn’t even the one up in front of the audience—one can only dream.

How exciting that you got to hear David Sedaris read. I'm a huge fan of his books and would love to go to a reading at some point.

He is coming to a local bookstore here and that was exactly the talk of last night's dinner party with my girlfriends!

I LOVE David Sedaris and my mom has been lucky to see him speak 3 times in Seattle! I'm waiting for my turn. :)

Sounds like you had a great time! I don't have any of his books but maybe I'll check one out!

Me Talk Pretty One Day was one of the few books that made me literally laugh out loud.
He is great. Wonderful that you got to see him!

How fun--my friends got to see him last spring and alas! I had a prior engagement with 16 kids from our church. I've heard only good things.
