David Sedaris is one of my favourite writers. His books always manage to make me laugh out loud or tear up while recognizing so many familiar experiences or painful realisations. He's unique in his way of taking the mundane in life and making it the most surreal, hilarious thing you'll ever live or read.
Therefore, I was beyond excited when a couple of years ago he came to Athens for a book signing. He was even lovelier in person, and it was fantastic to listen to him read an excerpt of his book. He signed two books for me, (yes, I brought two books, I'm a nerd) and I vividly remember me having a stupid smile for hours after.
The reason for this post is that I recently bought his book, Me talk pretty one day which chronicles his stay in Paris and his efforts to learn French. Oh, I so can't wait to read it!

Until next time, read a book.
