Me talk pretty one day

Author: David Sedaris
Publisher: New York : Little, Brown & Co., ©2000.
Edition/Format:   Book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Me Talk Pretty One Day contains far more than just the funniest collection of autobiographical essays - it quite well registers as a manifesto about language itself. Wherever there's a straight line, you can be sure that Sedaris lurks beneath the text, making it jagged with laughter; and just where the fault lines fall, he sits mischievously perched at the epicenter of it all.
