Click on the link below to access the David Sedaris interview. You only need to listen to the beginning where he reads another one of his memoirs, “Hejira.” This story takes place at a different time in his life and the subject is more serious. After listening to it, return here, click on the Create Journal Entry button, and answer the following questions in a well developed paragraph.
1. What is the conflict of this memoir, the thing that’s driving the narrative?
2. What is the theme, the human element to which readers can relate?
3. At what point does the story reach the point of no return (climax) when we know the conflict will eventually be resolved?
