Read in January, 2004

Like all of Sedaris' books, this one has some MAJOR, masterful escapades, made all the better because they are true...
Two favorite scenes:
Sedaris' mom and sister watch crime shows all summer and then... a mystery arises in their own household- who is wiping their butt on the towels? The BROWN towels, so the offense isn't recognized until one gets a face full. Who is it? "I don't know, but I know he had corn yesterday," is one quote that sticks in my mind.
I think Naked is also the book that opens with Sedaris' description of his childhood OCD- his walk home from school took several hours because he had to ritualistically touch various objects on the way home from school- mailboxes, garden gnomes, his own doorbell, etc.
Sedaris is such an incredible story teller.
