Naked by David Sedaris

Naked - David Sedaris

This book, a collection of short, biographical stories, was recommended to me by several people, after I'd asked about positive, uplifting books. While it didn't produce the full "laugh outloud" effect I'd been told it might, it was still an enjoyable book. The stories are apparently mostly true, exaggerated for humorous effect, though I was a bit unsure at first. Some points were a bit bothersome to me, but it was a good read.
