Me Talk Pretty One Day - Abacus 40th edition
|Series:||Abacus 40th Anniversary|
Welcome to the wonderful world of America's foremost humorist David Sedaris, where learning French, like life, is littered with idiosyncratic delight ...'The Italian was attempting to answer the teacher's latest question when the Moroccan student interrupted, shouting, "Excuse me, but what's an Easter?" The teacher called upon the rest of us to explain. "It is a party for the little boy of God who call his self Jesus." "He die one day and then he go above of my head to live with his father." "He weared of himself the long hair and after he die, the first day he come back here for to say hello to the peoples." "He nice, the Jesus."
The book that made Oscar Wilde seem dull: The brilliant, savage, hilarious collection of writings from David Sedaris being reissued with a new cover alongside other classic titles from the Abacus list in our 40th Anniversary year
