Last summer I discovered one of my now-favorite authors, David Sedaris. We were traveling along the east coast for a couple of weeks, and I had just learned how to download books onto my kindle from the library. I don't remember where I'd first heard of Sedaris, but in those couple of weeks, I flew through Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, Naked, Barrel Fever, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and Holidays on Ice. I love his writing style and the way he weaves together stories from his past and present, every situation just as hilarious and bizarre as the next. His most recent Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls did not disappoint.
One of my favorite sections was about his anticlimactic experience with French health care. Here's an excerpt via NPR if you're interested. And for those of you with even less time, here's an excerpt from that excerpt:
Now to put Sedaris' writing routines into practice and start writing every day.
