review Theft by Finding Diaries 1977 2002 Theft by Finding Diaries 1977 2002 review ´ 3 review Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï David Sedaris M he has honed his cunning surprising sentencesNow Sedaris shares his private writings with the world Theft by Finding the first of two volumes is the story of how a drug abusing dropout with a weakness for the International House of Pancakes and a chronic inability to hold down a real job became one of the funniest people on the planetWritten with. David Sedaris explains in the Introduction of his new book that in the UK if you discover something of value and keep it that s theft by finding Thus a great title was born and it suits the general theme of David s diaries But I have a suggestion for two alternative titles for this collection one borrowed from Garth Brooks Friends in Low Places and the other stolen from William Shakespeare The Comedy of ErrorsBefore I proceed I want to clarify I am a Sedaris lover not a hater I love the guy s writing I ve read all but one of his books of published essaysBut I feel compelled to say this If you are not an established reader of Sedaris s work I would not recommend that you start here Go read When You Are Engulfed in Flames or Dress Your Family in Corduroy and DenimStart where Sedaris writes with some polish and some humor not with the origins of his writing the bare bones if you will These are stark observations and they may or may not appealIt s not that this book isn t often hilariously funny it is It s not that this book isn t sometimes poignant surprisingly it s that too It s just that if you don t know David s writing I m not sure you re going to make it past page 75Frankly David s diary entries from the late 1970searly 1980s are fairly disgusting He was a hard core substance abuser at the time and I found it depressing to read about someone so desperate down on his hands and knees snorting an unknown white powder he has found in the hopes that it is cocaine or sniffing bags of glue and tempera paint because he has run out of money for better drugs Also he shares many anus focused ruminations I don t know how else to say this politely and these entries contain almost ridiculous amounts of the n word the p word and the c word I don t mean to suggest that David himself is using these words both racism and misogyny disgust him he is just surrounded by the absolute dregs of humanity in scenario after scenario and these losers love these words and David reports themFor me the highlight was the center of the book the mid 80s through the mid 90s when David starts to get his act together meets the love of his life and stops living on the total fringe of decent society This is where the diary entries are laugh out loud funny and I was actually taking pictures of passages and sending them to my sister who is a Sedaris fan who has not yet received her copy Ironically once his life becomes really stable his regular observations became somewhat boring and my feverish reading slowed though he did take me to a tender place regarding the premature loss of his mother That aspect of his writing has always been relatable to meFor established Sedaris fans this is a mostly fun read despite the degrading and loathsome accounts of humanity it reveals but personally I m holding out for new material Come on David let s hear about life in the UK Crawl under an overpass if you need to but give us something new

Dear Diary I read this book recently that was completely in diary format since the author had in fact published 25 years of diary entries Volume I apparently that started when he was about 20 21 years old and has continued on ever since He started off with brief statements and observations of his day I guess 1977 to 1983 are his really bleak years Which are typical when you re young broke and no real goals in life I think many of us could relate He s starting to sound a little humorousThe diary lightened up when I moved to Chicago partly because I was in a big city and because I felt better about myself David attended and graduated from the Art Institute here where many fabulous entries particularly his writing times at his favorite IHOP near his neighborhood Bountiful years And he s still aliveIn 1990 David moves to NYC and the world really opens up to him Tons of cleaning jobs to earn some cash millions to observe and times to write day or night He meets Hugh here thank goodness gets himself together a bit and starts to become the success he is today You know that uirky little guy that a reads his books out loud at all different venues and we pay our hard earned money to buy tickets to go listen to him willingly What a racket He s really funny though and we all like him I myself have all his books in print form and audio Personally I like sarcasmSo diary it s worth it I get my own copy today is going to drone it over I m lying I pre ordered it But I am going to also listen on audio so much better when David reads it to you Still what a racket Met David at the Aronoff Theatre in Cincinnati OH The show was great and he signed my book He told us his next book will be published May 2018 Okay Netgalley I hope it ll be available for reuest I m really disappointed that there are not any pictures in this book That New Yorker article recently got my hopes up for pictures Oh well Thanks to Netgalley and Little Brown and Company for the ARCYay got tkts to see David in October at the Aronoff TheatreNote to David Loved this book loved Calypso even however You are not off the hook on Dairies Part Two You re free to give it a title of your choice just bring it

review Theft by Finding Diaries 1977 2002 Theft by Finding Diaries 1977 2002 review ´ 3 review Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï David Sedaris A sharp eye and ear for the bizarre the beautiful and the uncomfortable and with a generosity of spirit that even a misanthropic sense of humor can't fully disguise Theft By Finding proves that Sedaris is one of our great modern observers It's a potent reminder that when you're as perceptive and curious as Sedaris there's no such thing as a boring d. In order to record your life you sort of need to live it 35 starsSo Theft By Finding great title is pretty straightforwardit is 25 years of selected diary entries written by Mr Sedaris The text features a lovely Introduction by Sedaris and then begins with entries from 1977 with a young roaming drug addled Sedaris doing menial labor It ends with him just getting uite big in the literary world 25 years later in 2002 sober and successful Although that growth is never implicitly stated it is clearly seen as one reads the changing perspectives and activities of Sedaris life Seeing a uarter century of growth and change in someone was one of the neatest aspects of the book for meNot to be crass but this text is great for call of nature reading if you occupy your time in that room in that manner Most of the entries are short Sedaris himself recommends picking up the book from time to time not reading it all the way through Another nice aspect of the text for me is Sedaris obvious love for his family They make uite a few appearances and the mentions of them are always colored with affection even when they upset himFor the most part I was engaged However I did not care for the section where he focuses on learning French Bored me I can t say why really I usually enjoy Mr Sedaris Theft By Finding has not changed that

    EBOOK Theft by Finding Diaries 1977 2002 David Sedaris is so authentically David Sedaris This first collection of his diaries reveal him as everything you'd expect and want him to be and reading it only made me love him The feeling of being in the backseat or perched on the handlebars of his bike perhaps as he struggles through his early years is both incredibly reassuring and of course hilarious There is so much fantastic observational humor in this Sedaris spends loads of time j
