David Sedaris's Me Talk Pretty One Day revisits his oh, so comical childhood years in a household of six children, including himself, with the combination of a sometimes loudmouthed mother and a father who loves his jazz and his vodka. Me Talk Pretty One Day opens to a story line as if it came straight of a movie: an “agent” knocking a classroom door to pick up a suspected criminal. But after learning that the agent was actually a speech therapist trying to cure young David's lisp, that fear was gone. Along came a series of hilarious stories about the speech therapy classes, or a series of "de-gaying" classes as Sedaris saw them. If you can not tell already, I am more than fond of this book.
