About the Bonus Book

Me Talk Pretty One Day
David Sedaris
Valued at $16.99

A bestselling collection of laugh-till-you-cry essays by David Sedaris. Inspired by a move to Paris from New York, including his attempts to learn French from a sadistic teacher who declares that 'every day spent with you is like having a caesarean section'. His family is another inspiration, with a portrait of his brother, who talks incessant hip-hop slang to his bewildered father. And no one hones a finer fury in response to such modern annoyances as restaurant meals presented in ludicrous towers of food and cashiers with six-inch fingernails.
