Every True Pleasure
David Sedaris
University of North Carolina Press

In the personal essay Hejira, David Sedaris recounts the day his father kicked him out of the house at the age of twenty-two. David was confused at his mother's inconsolable crying as she said goodbye, because unbeknownst to David, his father had kicked him out because he was gay and not, as David originally assumed, because he was a bum.

Keywords:   Hejira, David Sedaris, personal essay, father, mother, gay, kicked out
