David Sedaris's remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life is surpassed only by his ability to make his stories even more hilarious when he reads them aloud.

David sedaris

From the time I first heard David Sedaris, I couldn't wait until his next tale, of family, friends and his life..from the laugh out loud to the touching moments, thoroughly enjoy every moment, won't stop until I have his whole collection, wonderfully written and wonderfully read.

Love this man!

I love listening to this guy! I discovered him by accident on Radio 4 and now have all four recordings. he's very funny, tongue in cheek, dry sense of humor and I'm lucky enough to be going to see - hear him read live in June!

Boring

Monotonous rendition of mediocre materials. Surprised by others’ glorious reviews. Perhaps you m just not getting the jokes.

Listen to this!

David Sedaris leads a funny old life writes it down then reads it. There’s something comforting to hear him tell you how it happened in his own words. A great book recommended
