She walked beside me and asked what appeared to be an innocent and unrelated question: So, which do you like better, State or Carolina? She was referring to the athletic rivalry between the Triangle area’s two largest universities.

His family is another inspiration. You Can't Kill the Rooster is a portrait of his brother, who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers of food and cashiers with six-inch fingernails.

I bought this because I've listened to David Sedaris reading/presenting his essays and while listening to him makes me laugh out loud, reading makes me smile broadly. Great stories, many of which are quite thought provoking as well as funny. If you enjoy reading short stories as opposed to a full length novel then these are a great modern take on the humorous short story.

A new collection from David Sedaris is cause for jubilation. His recent move to Paris has inspired hilarious pieces, including Me Talk Pretty One Day, about his attempts to learn French. You Cant Kill the Rooster is a portrait of his brother who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers and cashiers with 6-inch fingernails.

SUMMARY: David Sedaris's new collection tells a most unconventional life story. It begins with a North Carolina childhood filled with speech therapy classes and unwanted guitar lessons taught by a midget. From budding performance artist to writing teacher in Chicago, his career leads him to New York and eventually, of all places, France. Arriving a spooky man-child capable of communicating only through nouns, he is led ever deeper into cultural confusion. Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other - Original, acid, and wild.

And whether your dream is to write or to connect with whomever your audience is, I can help you become a better storyteller. To do that, you have to learn to say yes, ask questions, and be open to ideas and experiences. Everyone has a story to tell.

I bought this book for David Sedaris to sign. Get this in conjunction with the audio book. There is nothing better than hearing him read these stories. We laugh our butts off listening to him. One time, we had to pull over because we were scared of getting into an accident. I would go into more detail, but it's better to listen or read for yourself. He's absolutely incredible.

This is probably the funniest book I've read in my life. His humor is eccentric the Never Fails to make me laugh out loud.

Highly recommended from a friend --- I'm not disappointed. I'm more than half way through the book and i want to hear more. I connected with the author because of the clever humor he and siblings used to mess with their parents. This book is amazing on tape and I love the author's narration. Its so much more authentic and expressive.

Based on all the reviews I bought this and prepared to be fantastically entertained. I couldn't wait for the laughter to bubble up and spill out of me. I'm still waiting. Sadly, I have finished the book and other than a few chuckles, no laughter, as was promised by the other reviewers. In fact , perhaps because the reviews set it up as a hilarious read, I was expecting too much, but most of wasn't funny at all. I do agree with the other reviews that the section on him learning to speak French was funny, but it's a small section of the book. I kept reading it waiting for the laughter to come, for the promised humor to appear-after all many of the reviewers had said the author was the funniest writer out there, but if he is this book isn't a good representation of his work. If you are looking for a laugh out loud, how do I not wake my spouse up while I read this in bed cause I'm laughing so hard book, skip this one. I don't know how much the other reviewers were paid but that's the only thing that explains the over the top reviews.

I know that Sedaris is brilliantly funny. I've enjoyed him on radio many times, so I was disappointed that the belly laughs I expected (and was promised by other reviewers) never arrived. I kept reading because the stories were interesting and because I've like the author as a speaker, but this book did not make me want to read more of Sedaris. Instead it made me hungry for more of him on radio. I suppose Sedaris fans will love the book and hate my review. So be it. The friend I gave the book to after I read it, loved it too.

I felt like this book got off to a slow start. The author's childhood reminisces were not as entertaining to me as his description of living in France as an expat. The stories about his French lessons and his wanderings in Paris were hilarious. The second half is enjoyable enough to slog through the first half.

I didn't realize that this was a collection of short stores, so I was really confused for a few chapters wondering where he was going. Part one was just weird and random in my opinion, even after I figured out that it wasn't linear. I kept re-reading to see if I missed where it was supposed to be funny. I almost quit reading but pushed myself to finish since I purchased it. I finally started laughing in Part Deux and I can see where the 5 star reviews come from there.
I’ve long wanted to read Sedaris, and can’t belive I waited so long. His writing is truly entertaining - parts made me laugh aloud!
