I just don't care for David Sedaris There I've said it I've made peace with the fact I have stared deep into the cockles of my heart and forced myself to come to the only obvious but unpopular conclusionI just don't care for David SedarisIt was somewhat of an existential struggle for me to reach this conclusion because I'm exactly the kind of person who should like David SedarisI am a sarcastic Generation Xer with an overdeveloped sense of irony I enjoy reading personal essays about poignant and humiliating events in people's personal lives Understated comedy is favorite genre I look at myself in the mirror and practice being droll Hell I even like listening to This American Life on NPR I am exactly the target demographic for the witty petty misanthropy with which Mr Sedaris plies his tradeBut I just don't care for David SedarisI find him to be thoroughly unlikable He comes across as the type of person who might be fun to have a beer with but afterwards he'd probably make fun of you behind your back When I was reading this book I thought that his stories and characters were a little too colorful and a little too perfect to be true And as he tells the stories of his childhood he comes across as a 40 year old gay man trapped in an eight year old's body wow that sentence doesn't sound right After I finished the book I found that Mr Sedaris does indeed subscribe to a rather fluid definition of truth some of the instances were exaggerated And by exaggerated' I mean completely made up But these revelations have done little to stem the tide of bare knuckled enthusiasm of his legion of fans I am confronted by people who are adamant that despite my protests to the contrary I really do like David Sedaris It seems that Mr Sedaris' work has become a litmus test for a certain level of sophistication If you tell people that you just don't care for David Sedaris they look at you like you've got a mullet tucked into the collar of your shirt a six pack of Old Milwaukee in the fridge and a Tivo filled up with NASCAR races Well I for one refuse to be pigeon holed And today I am calling on all like minded people to join me And together we canuh not like Sedaris Say it with me We're loud we're proudand we just don't care for David Sedaris That about sums it upBecause what's the point to these anecdotes? Are you trying to tell me something Mr Sedaris? I think not You think you're funny? Meh not that funny Special? You're not that special either You're a writer just another writer What's the big deal? As I said I don't care much for your little stories Seriously my dear I don't give a damn Witty wry bitter delightfulMy mom gave me the book I was living in France at the time so she thought David Sedaris and I would have a ton in common She went to a Sedaris booksigning to get a personalized message to her gay son in France After he was done reading she jumped up to get him to write a note to me David My son is gay He's living in France right now please sign this copy for him He had already started an orderly signing process going down the rows He looked at her disgustedly and intoned I'll get to you He then skipped her row and did all the others first making everyone in her row hate her imagine the wrath of a row of David Sedaris fans ouch When he finally got to her last he said name? and she started her story about me Tim He's 17 and he's gay and he's been living in France this year so if you could put something about France He handed her book back not having heard anything past my name instead writing some witty thing with bad grammar that played off the book's title When I returned from France my mother gave me the book but had lost all respect for the author It's a good book but he was a complete asshole she saidMy mother's experience aside I'm sure Sedaris is not actually a soulless cruel person If you want a light read by a smart gay cynic this is a great book Me talk Pretty one day David Sedaris Me Talk Pretty One Day published in 2000 is a bestselling collection of essays by American humorist David Sedaris The book is separated into two parts The first part consists of essays about Sedaris’s life before his move to Normandy France including his upbringing in suburban Raleigh North Carolina his time working odd jobs in New York City and a visit to New York from a childhood friend and her bumpkinish girlfriend The second section Deux tells of Sedaris’s move to Normandy with his partner Hugh often drawing humor from his efforts to live in France without speaking the French language and his frustrated attempts to learn it Prior to publication several of the essays were read by the author on the Public Radio International program This American Lifeتاریخ نخستین خوانش روز بیست و نهم ماه دسامبر سال 2013میلادیعنوان بالاخره یه روزی قشنگ حرف میزنم؛ اثر دیوید سداریس؛ مترجم پیمان خاکسار؛ مشخصات نشر تهران، نشر چشمه، 1391؛ در 234ص؛ اندازه 521سم در 514سم، شابک 9786002291134؛ موضوع داستانهای طنزآمیز نویسندگان آمریکایی سده 21ممجموعه‌ ای از مقاله‌ ها، و یادداشت‌های طنز، اثر «دیوید سداریس»، نویسنده‌ ی امریکایی است؛ جناب «پیمان خاکسار»، در مقدمه‌ ی کتاب، درباره‌ ی رفتن سراغ نویسنده‌ هایی همچون «سداریس»، و معرفی آن‌ها به خوانشگران فارسی‌ زبان، می‌نویسند «ممکن است با دیدن عناوین بعضی از کتاب‌هایی که ترجمه کرده‌ ام با خودتان بگویید، این نویسنده‌ ها دیگر کیستند؟ شاید پیش خودتان فکر کنید، که خاکسار دوست دارد نویسنده‌ های بی‌ اهمیت و ناشناخته را از تاریک‌ترین کنج‌های ادبیات جهان پیدا کند، و آثارشان را ترجمه کند؛ این‌طور نیست؛ این نویسنده‌ ها مهم‌ هستند؛ شاید مهم‌تر و مشهورتر از کسانی که آثارشان در ایران، ترجمه و خوانده می‌شود؛ در دورانی که مخاطب ادبیات بودم، و ترجمه نمی‌کردم، همیشه برایم سئؤال بود که چرا هیچ مترجمی سراغ این آثار نمی‌رود؟ شاید همین باعث شد، به ترجمه روی بیاورم، تا نویسنده‌ هایی را که دوستشان داشتم، ولی آثارشان به فارسی ترجمه نشده بود را، به شما معرفی کنم، تا در لذت خواندن‌شان باهم شریک شویم؛ دیوید سداریس هم از همین دسته نویسندگان است» پایان نقلتاریخ بهنگام رسانی 03071399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی I've been thinking a lot about this and I have come to the conclusion that David Sedaris is one of the worst human beings in history ie since human beings were first invented by an incompetent Jerry Lewis like god or by the inscrutable permutations of natural phenomena This isn't a moral judgment It's like when someone tells you that you have spinach stuck in your teeth It's both the mere reportage of a fact and a public service Because after all you wouldn't want to walk around all day with spinach in your teeth and you wouldn't want to spend your life mistakenly thinking that David Sedaris wasn't evil and unfunny Maybe I hate David Sedaris so much abstractly; not with the visceral hatred I have for Mariah Carey because I imagine all of these young straight couples in J Crew worsted wool sweaters throwing back their heads like Mrs Howell laughing at his weak but fashionable humor Maybe they're in their Toyota Highlanders driving out to Restoration Hardware to look at the brushed steel knobs and the faux Victorian gewgaws Have you been to Oak Brook? They probably live there and have heated floor tiles and towel warmers in their bathroom The women all look like cut rate Carolyn Bessette Kennedys before the plane crash and the men look like the guy getting married in The Hangover David Sedaris is an entry level gay for these people right? They're all liberal sure but out in Oak Brook their gay contacts are limited to the service industry The housewares clerk at Lord Taylor the hairdresser or that one swishy waiter at Maggiano's who's stingy with the bread basket You know the usual A Team of tanned men with shaved forearms and hyperreal hairdos What I am saying is that David Sedaris is a nice accessory Sure your grandparents might find some of his humor off color or distasteful but in the age of Sarah Silverman he's almost uaint Anal sex and its intimations take on a Bombeckian glow in his hands And that kerrunk kerrunk sound you hear is Jean Genet rolling over in his grave and masturbating on a pile of his own fecesThere are currently twenty one people on my friends list who have rated this book Only two have assigned it fewer than three stars Defend yourselves bourgeois scum I mean that affectionately You probably thought Bob Saget was funny on America's Funniest Home Videos too didn't you? Sedaris is a uirky kind of writer I needed a palate cleanser after the last few heavy reads and this one delivered From a betrayal of the tongue which reuired speech therapy to a midget music teacher and some various comical moments in his life his memoir had me chuckling out loud and talking about it to whomever was in the room But alas a third of the way in it read like a rant and I uickly became bored What began as a breath of fresh air became stale but did give a final gasp at the end First two thirds razor sharp; last 3rd kind of dull For that I'm rating this 35 Ah My first David Sedaris read not counting the weird Suirrel book and I finally understand what all the fuss is about The humor is so good it's mesmerizing I'm in awe of his ability to make ordinary life sparkle through such rich narrationThere is no mundane task that Sedaris cannot do without dazzling the reader Anything and everything is cause for social commentary and uproarious observation From learning to play the guitar to going to the movies to an unusually large turd floating in the toilet he finds opportunity to poke fun at the world poke fun at himself and combine various events into unforgettable knee slapping comedyTruly a landmark I totally get why this book continues to endure nearly 20 years later It is an instant classic that belongs just behind Mark Twain if not dare I say in front If I were in someone else's bathroom and there were no other reading materials except for something by David Sedaris I would pick it up and flip through it I probably would even find myself slightly amused But my basic opinion about David Sedaris which is that he is boring not very funny mean and bitchy and too lazy to write a novel would remain unchanged Remember when people who had fucked up or interesting lives drew on their personal experiences to create artful often symbolic stories that speak to some kind of greater human existence? Remember when people basically only wrote their autobiography after they had accomplished many other notable things in their life? At the very least one would use the events of their life to address some important social issueAmong others we have David Sedaris to thank for ushering in the age of this crappy voyeristic autobiography sub genre that is basically the print version of reality tv So somebody has a weird dysfunctional family So do most of us It's really not that interesting The title of the book is pretty lame Did you really talk like that David? No I don't think you did I think you were just a middle class gay kid who lisped got sent to speech therapy for it and then wanted to pretend that you were marginalized than you actually wereAlso his sister is way funnier than he is Another collection of Sedaris tales as we have come to know and love His cynical banter and humorous anecdotes shine again While some might say the same old formula gets old with Sedaris it is expected and greatly appreciated I even heard he changed the formula in a recent book and it was not well receivedI listened to the audio and love hearing the words from the mouth of the author His delivery and timing are perfect which I suppose is to be expected as they are his words but not every author can read their words as well as they write It is great how he can make every mundane activity an entertaining anecdoteIf you like a little humorous getaway check out this and other Sedaris books This book has been my tube companion for the past fortnight It is the perfect accompaniment to the London commute for two reasons1 The essays are perfectly formed so you can be assured that you'll be able to finish 3 little chunks over 40 minutes or so Once the train trundled into Westminster station I would know to uicken my pace so as to finish another section before alighting at Blackfriars and elbowing some bankers2 My tube line is the epitome of the British stiff upper lip People's faces remain practically emotionless from Putney to Barking to Richmond and up to High Street Kensington Of course scrum tackles take place at each station as people push on during rush hour But NO emotions pass across the face of a commuter Apart from perhaps a slight grimace when the new arrival feels it necessary to share all the details of their skiing holiday with the entire carriage Anyway to the point With Sedaris in my hand I have been snorting honking and smiling as never before seen on the District Line The 50 something lady who settled into her seat at Wimbledon with the Daily Telegraph looks up nervously The banker ignoring the opinion section of the FT for the far fascinating Stocks and shares pages shifts nervously And then I snort once Being in such a cheery mood once a seat becomes available I offer it to the young lady in slightly uncomfortable looking high heels reading the bible aka the Metro thus leaving the assembled masses concerned that I may be clinically insane and yet on their train
