David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveller. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it?

In his new book David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives - a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love.

DRESS YOUR FAMILY IN CORDUROY AND DENIM finds one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today at the peak of his form.

'His best, funniest, most satisfying book.' Time Out

'Sedaris writes with a gentle but unfailing acuity and a keen eye for the ridiculous...extremely funny.' Sunday Times

'If you haven't come across David Sedaris, get in quickly before over- exposure sucks him dry.' Guardian.
