Why did I love this book?
As someone who changes their residency and social security number more often than their toothbrush, I love a good book about acculturation. The way Sedaris describes his struggle to learn French will leave any language nerd laughing out loud. As a Canadian, I’m a little like an American (sorry if that pisses off both Americans and Canadians). Anyway, the cultural observations between Americans and French people are accurate and hilarious. And, as always, Sedaris doesn’t hold back from telling you about all his flaws and mistakes.
