Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is a good summer read. One warning: many of these stories have been published previously in magazines, so if you read the New Yorker, you have probably read several. Sedaris is one of my favorite humorists, honest and often laugh out loud funny. Like most essay collections, the book is a bit uneven, but if you want to laugh this summer, read this book.
The next book I will read, Shanghai Baby by Wei Hui, was recommended by my brother. The book covers the '80s rock and roll scene in Shanghai, I'm looking forward to it.
