by David Sedaris
Times like this are when I really love audiobooks. Is there anything funnier than having David Sedaris read his own books to you? Not much, I'm thinking. While humorous as always, this series of essays felt bleaker than other works of his I have read, but "Six to Eight Black Men", an essay involving Dutch Christmas mythology, had me laughing until I cried, which was pretty embarrassing because I was listening to it at work. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is not my favorite of Sedaris' works that I have read so far (When You Are Engulfed In Flames currently holds that position), but it is still well worth the time when you're in need of a chuckle.

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!
