"No chair by the fire is complete without it!"
Top up the log burner, pour yourself a nice glass of wine, close the curtains to keep the world out, wrap a nice blanket round your shoulders and pull up your favourite armchair. If you're still reading this review, you're gonna love listening to this audiobook!
David Sedaris is a master, not only of word selection, but also of putting them in the perfect order! His tales and diary entries are delivered in a deliberate, precise, gentle tone but evoke the whole spectrum of emotions from aching belly-laughs to soul-searching reflections.
He phrases things in a thought-provoking way and has that fantastic skill of dusting-off the mundane and revealing hidden depths everywhere he explores, but in SUCH a funny way.
Listening to David Sedaris tell a story is always a real treat, and this audiobook is no exception.
