    DescriptionDavid Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveller. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his new book David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives - a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim finds one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today at the peak of his form.

    Review quote
    These are scenes of family life at its best, written with clarity but also with great affection, through which the character of the author emerges, watchful, self-mocking and full of understanding. TLS This is a man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake. OBSERVER 'Mr Sedaris's humour is dry, witty and consistently successful.' ECONOMIST 'Sedaris is like an updated Thurber: domestic, laconic, slightly warped but never bitter, and extremely funny.' CULTURE, SUNDAY TIMES 'His best, funniest, most satisfying book.'
