Naked

Naked

A riotous collection of memoirs which explores the absurd hilarity of modern life and creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behaviour in ‘A Plague of Tics’ to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the company of lunatics. At this soulful and moving moment, he brushes cigarette ashes from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means.

This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong search for identity leaving himself both under suspicion and over dressed.

Genuinely funny, at time hilarious . . . Makes for a smashing use of audio as a unique entertainment medium . . . Highly likable and spirited throughout
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
I just love Sedaris's stories. They're honest, funny and uncompromising, and they read as if they're effortless to write, which is a mark of how brilliantly crafted they are
Rebecca Front
A satirical brazenness that holds up next to Twain and Nathaneal West
