David Sedaris's remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this new book of stories. Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life - the etiquette of having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger or how to soundproof your windows with LP covers against neurotic songbirds - to the most deeply resonant human truths. Taking in the parasitic worm that once lived in his mother-in-law's leg, an encounter with a dingo and the purchase of a human skeleton, and culminating in a brilliant account of his attempt to quit smoking - in Tokyo - David Sedaris's sixth story collection is a fresh masterpiece of comic writing.

" Quand je suis parti en France l'été suivant, je ne connaissais qu'un mot de français : bouchon. En atterrissant à l'aéroport j'ai dit bouchon ; dans le train qui m'emportait vers la Normandie, je disais bouchon (...). L'été suivant nous sommes revenus en France. J'ai pu ajouter 420 mots à ma collection, la plupart piochés dans Voici." Ce roman burlesque et insolent de David Sedaris relate son enfance en Caroline du Nord. Tout jeune, on lui diagnostique une paresse chronique de la langue. Il est comme son professeur de guitare, un adulte piégé dans un corps d'enfant. David va tour à tour se chercher et se perdre dans plusieurs domaines, mais il sent vite qu'il n'a aucun talent. Il est le vilain petit canard, l'homosexuel, le drogué, celui qui zozote. Je parler français est l'histoire irrésistiblement drôle de sa vie, de ses nombreuses déceptions, de sa quête d'une certaine idée du bonheur.

In David Sedaris's world, no one is safe and no cow is sacred. A manic cross between Mark Leyner, Fran Lebowitz and the National Enquirer, Sedaris's collection of stories and essays is a rollicking tour through the American Zeitgeist: a man who is loved too much flees the heavyweight champion of the world; a teenage suicide tried to incite a lynch mob at her funeral; and in his essays, David Sedaris considers the hazards of rewards of smoking, writing for Giantess magazine, and living with his scrappy brother Paul, aka 'The Rooster'. With a perfect eye and a voice infused with as much empathy as wit, Sedaris writes and reads stories and essays that target the soulful ridiculousness of our behaviour. Barrel Fever is like a blind date with modern life - and anything can happen.

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.

No matter what your favorite holiday, you won't want to miss celebrating it with the author who has been called "one of the funniest writers alive" (Economist).

" Lisez ce témoignage et vous resterez hanté à jamais. " Newsweek Sierra Leone. Il s'appelle Ishmael Beah. Hier encore, c'était un enfant qui jouait à la guerre. Aujourd'hui, il la fait. Un jour de 1993, sa vie bascule brusquement dans le chaos. Ishmael a douze ans lorsqu'il quitte son village pour participer, dans la ville voisine, à un spectacle de jeunes talents. Il ne reverra plus jamais ses parents. Après plusieurs mois d'errance et de privations, dans un pays ravagé par la guerre, il tombe avec ses compagnons entre les mains de l'armée. Faute de troupes, les deux camps - armée gouvernementale et groupes rebelles - enrôlent de force les enfants des villages capturés et leur apprennent à égorger, à torturer, à mutiler. Drogué au brown brown, mélange de cocaïne et de poudre à fusil, Ishmaël a pour seul compagnon son AK-47. Privé de tout repère moral - ou tout simplement humain - dans un monde qui s'est effondré, il devient insensible, incapable de réfléchir, transformé en machine à tuer. A seize ans, une mission humanitaire va lui permettre de quitter l'armée et, lentement, de se réhabiliter. Il ira à New York, aux Nations unies, et son existence se trouvera une nouvelle fois bouleversée... Ce premier livre, récit fascinant d'une traversée de l'enfer à l'aube de la vie, est une leçon de courage et d'humanité.
