This book is not only my favorite Sedaris collection, which is really saying something, it is also the funniest book I have ever read. I have a distinct memory of tuning in to NPR one day years ago, just in time to hear Sedaris reading "Giant Dreams, Midget Abilities." In this story, a young David tries to impress his short-statured guitar teacher Mr. Mancini by singing the Oscar Mayer jingle in the style of Billie Holiday. My husband and I laughed until we cried. From the now infamous tale of Sedaris' demanding French teacher, to one about his stint as a writing instructor in Chicago, every single essay here is an instant classic and a joy to read. 

— From Jill's Picks

A recent transplant to Paris, humorist David Sedaris, bestselling author of "Naked", presents a collection of his strongest work yet, including the title story about his hilarious attempt to learn French. A number one national bestseller now in paperback.
