Lots of new materials.

As always the selection fits the words "David Sedaris' remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life ..."

But this time (e.g. Series Five) he brings a lot of new material, so this collection is not just a compilation of his previous Audiobooks.

Recommended with great joy !

Sedaris - 5th series is a joy

Sedaris audio books are always a guilty pleasure like eating the last chocolate in the box. He is a very funny man. His storytelling will have you in fits wondering where the time went.
