I like the title from the David Sedaris book. He's one writer I'm on the lookout for. I'll keep my eyes opened for your review.
Ben- Yeah, I've only read one of his books, but currently have two residing in the TBR stack. One day, one day. I'm sure it's good, though. I'll keep you updated.
Nice! I almost bought On Beauty last week at Half Price Books but didn't and now I am kicking myself for it. Maybe it will still be there when I go back, but I'm guessing not. I'm also looking forward to your thoughts on When You Are Engulfed in Flames - I think that's the next Sedaris I want to read.
Brenna- This is my first Zadie Smith-- can you believe it?!?! It's almost shameful. I'm collecting these Sedaris books, but have NO IDEA when I'll actually find the time to read them. I had to get it at such a great price.
I love On Beauty - Zadie Smith is an excellent writer. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I actually prefer it to White Teeth (her debut, which is actually a great read). I have the Sedaris book, but haven't read it yet, so I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it (along with the Smith). Cheers!
Love, LOVE On Beauty! And you can't go wrong with David Sedaris. Great picks!
Atlanta native. I LOVE VALUE VILLAGE and miss it so much - great place to get books. The Tipping Point is great, as are his followups. Happy reading!
