Review for "Theft by Finding: Diaries, 1977-2002" by David Sedaris (2017) Rating: none
DNF around page 200 or so, hence no rating.
I like David Sedaris. I’ve read numerous books he’s written over the years (When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked) but this one I just didn’t care for. Perhaps I am just the wrong audience for the kind of minutiae that makes up his journals. I simply don’t find details about insects from 1982 or diatribes on an unpaid phone bill the least bit entertaining. I’ll still read Sedaris, but I realize now that I’m one of the rare people on this earth who is not at all interested in how his mind works.
One thought on “Review: Theft By Finding: Diaries 1977-2002”
Interesting. I couldn’t put it down. In fact it brought me back to Sedaris after a long break, and I’ve been rereading his stuff ever since. I thought it was cool to watch him emerge as a writer, as a humorist and as an adult.
