I ordered David Sedaris’ new book today! I’m sure I’ll love it! I’ve enjoyed all of his books. There are always lines that make me burst out laughing!
“If you’re looking for sympathy you’ll find it between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.”
“I haven’t the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.”
“We were not a hugging people. In terms of emotional comfort it was our belief that no amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well made cocktail.”
“Hugh and I have been together for so long that in order to arouse extraordinary passion, we need to engage in physical combat. Once, he hit me on the back of the head with a broken wineglass, and I fell to the floor pretending to be unconscious. That was romantic, or would have been had he rushed to my side rather than stepping over my body to fetch the dustpan.”
“Their house had real hardcover books in it, and you often saw them lying open on the sofa, the words still warm from being read.”
