On David Sedaris' Writing
I'm finally reading the newest book by David Sedaris. So far, as most of his writing, it doesn't disappoint. His stories/essay have the rare quality of entertaining; making me laugh, and in the next page (especially the endings) to be gut wrenching astute in their sadness and many times profoundness. The whole essay can center on the annoyance/frustration even hatred towards the subject only to end on a curve ball of love and repentance. Not only is this done for pure emotional effect, but it re-casts the whole story, letting us see, if not from a different angle than deeper one.
