The beginning of the end was when I saw him live a couple of years ago. Seeing him live was the pinnacle of my Sedaris experience. The affair began when I heard his nasal voice on NPR. Then I discovered Naked and Me Talk Pretty One Day. I was not alone. It turns out many of my friends liked him as well.
I missed him on his last book tour, promoting his new book, but I did catch him when he was promoting Me Talk Pretty One Day. He was great. His stories got that little something extra from his voice.
Then, the love affair was over. I have read a few of the stories in Dress Your Family, but they are just are not doing it for me.
However, if you have not heard/read him, I highly recommend him.
