Summertime is for easy, entertaining reads, but in these last days of the (supposedly) sunny season, that doesn't mean you have to read junk. Enter David Sedaris' laugh out loud Naked.
If you've never read, heard (on NPR show and Brix Pick This American Life), or seen him (he often talks and signs around the country), you don't know what you're missing.
“True Detective” is one of my faves (another classic, “You Can't Kill The Rooster” is in a later collection, Me Talk Pretty One Day), but to really pick favorites from this outstanding, hilarious collection is like picking a favorite child–you have to like them all or you just aren't human.
