    Hello it’s David Sedaris Mostly old favorites but some I didn’t remember But you can always reread David Sedaris

  2. Becca Becca says:

    Perfection for these endless days of worry and anxiety One of the most entertaining honest uirky and unashamed writers I have read Sedaris' stories inner monologue and personality are seemingly so strange and yet he always finds a way to get to the depth of the human spirit and the love and joy in the messy chaos that is normal lifeDefinitely some re readlistens for Sedaris fans but that's not the worst thing to happen this year is it?

  3. Josh Josh says:

    I love listening to Sedaris read his stories He’s such a good storyteller and humorist While avid fans like me have likely read most of the stories within I still enjoyed it The chronology also puts on display how he has matured as a writer with increasing depth over time and touches of sorrow and melancholy added in that give him of a three dimensionality than you find in earlier work Thanks to Librofm for the free listening copy

  4. Chris Loop Chris Loop says:

    A great place to start for anyone unfamiliar with Sedaris and great for longtime readers His ability to make the mundane humorous in a way only he can I was fortunate enough to win a copy from goodreads and it will be a great reread whenever a pick up is needed

  5. Elisabeth Elisabeth says:

    I love David Sedaris He has a great sarcastic sense of humor that he tempers with sharp human interest observations Sweet and funnywickedly sharp and poignant These are repeat stories but still worth a read Listening to the audio of David reading his own work is even better
