Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The bestselling author of Naked presents a savagely funny collection of stories, including pieces about his sojourn in Paris, as well as those that have been featured in The New Yorker, Esquire, and on National Public Radio.


Review:

"[I]f Mr. Sedaris sometimes sounds as though he were making do with leftover material, TALK PRETTY still makes for diverting reading. At the same time this volume shows Mr. Sedaris intermittently trying to step out of his role as curmudgeonly complainer. Though he still whips off the tart put-down with practiced ease...[H]e also shows himself capable, in these pages, of something approaching empathy and introspection....[T]he stronger chapters in this book tend to be the ones that mix satire with sentiment, brazenness with rumination. Those pieces reveal a writer who is capable not only of being funny, but touching, even tender, too."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 06/16/2000

Review:

"Many lines and several of the premises are brilliant, worthy of our best comic essayists [but the] gifted Sedaris has not been hard enough on himself. At the risk of sounding patronizing, I suspect there is a better writer in there than he is as yet willing to let out."

Jonathan Reynolds, New York Times, 06/04/2000
