Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the mania for memoir on its ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview-a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course!) with a quadriplegic companion; a family gathers for a wedding in the face of imminent death. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without doubt one of the freshest in American writing.

    "Very good read from David Sedaris. In it, he swings you through emotions that he has weaved into the story , from hilarity to cold-as-stone in outrage. "

    "In this day and age it is really hard for a book to surprise me, but Naked just did that. This is not a typical book in any sense. From the unique characters, to the imaginative writing, this book takes you on a great adventure. The author really goes out of his way to make this a book you will remember. Such a great story to read. "

    "I have to be totally honest, David Sedaris is my favorite person. If there is a talk show coming on, see if David Sedaris is a guest. It will always be hilarious. This book will keep you laughing. David (Brother to the also very hilarious Amy) is one of the smartest, funniest people ever. He has led a tough, but intensely interesting life. His earlier biographical work "Me Talk Pretty" is also funny. Do NOT miss this..In fact read EVERYTHING he's ever written."

    "I have never read a novel that's funny or makes me laugh before. I didn't know such a book existed. I really liked it, and I'll look for more books by this author."

    "I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased this, but the description really won me over and made me want to have a listen. It's quite humorous in it's delivery, as it's not a title that takes itself very seriously. That said, there were also some parts that I found quite profound and moved by. Very unique and special work. Highly recommend checking this out."

    "Naked is one of the best worth-reading thick books. My son read it over and over and couldn't get tired of it. It's one of those books that live in one's mind even when they grow old. "
