    Any David Sedaris Fans out there?

    If so, do you have any other author recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Amy Sedaris?? Cupcakes, anyone?

    I'm kinda fond of Hollis Gillespie, "Bleachy-Haired Honky Bitch" and "Confession of a Recovering Slut, and Other Love Stories".

    I loved "Naked" and "Me Talk Pretty"; didn't like "Dress Yuor Family" quite as much but it was still good.

    He's also a lot of fun to listen to him read his audiobooks.

    I would second the recommendation for Augusted Burroughs. Also maybe John Hodgman's new book, "The Areas of my Expertise." Supposedly if you like Sedaris you'd also like David Rakoff but I didn't like his book Fraud, I thought it was boring and self-aware.

    Love him.

    I think Sarah Vowells writes with a similar wit, although more on a political American history-obsessed tangent rather than a check out how crazy my family is slant.
