Not a question, per se, but some thoughts for you to consider in your response to "Repeat After Me":

Famed essayist Joan Didion writes in the preface to her collection, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, "Writers are always selling somebody out." It's clear that Sedaris struggles with his role of writer (lecturer) versus member of a family, yet writers are always "[removing themselves] from the equation" in order to write (448). According to Sedaris, he "got out of" the film adaptation of Me Talk Pretty One Day after having the conversation with his sister that is featured in "Repeat After Me."
