Interesting stories shared about home life.
Change the narrator. His voice annoyed me after a while. He sounded like he was whining, which was not enjoyable to hear.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my go to for fun. Harry Potter - just because. Loved the Magic of Tidying Up and Shakespeare
The cynical humor Sedaris brings to everyday life...
The Rooster! Sedaris' brother Paul is just hilarious as seen through the author's eyes.
His voice is perfect because it is him! The hint of sarcasm is fabulous.
The whole thing moved me to roll on the floor hugging my gut laughing
If you need a good belly laugh Sedaris is for you
I didn't expect to be listening to a story about a boy struggling with homosexuality. I appreciate the struggle, but not what I signed up for.
what a funny, quirky family. Sedaris is able to mix melancholy with quirk to form entertaining, sometimes hilarious tales.
the live performances at the end were definitely funnier. I don't know what it is, but David Sedaris reading to a live audience is faaaaar funnier than David Sedaris reading in a studio.

Davids Sedaris is a skilled performer with an unusual voice. I caught myself laughing out loud more than once, catching puzzled looks from fellow travellers. A very funny read!
Continue to listen to some of my favorite chapters, & bought another one of his books. He is so funny!
