This was my first book by David Sedaris and I totally understand why people live him. It was funny and sad and thought provoking, but mostly just funny. He's a great essayist and a great performer.
David Sedaris tells a story like no one else can. I laugh every time I read or listen. I could listen to this audiobook over and over, and it would never get old. the portrayals of his family members are so real and so genuine. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a funny bone!
Funny? Of course. But a bit wise too -that was a surprise. Wonderful in any format but especially great as an audiobook.
This audiobook really brought a smile to my face. Hearing Sedaris tell it in his own dry way really adds to it (my own inner reader is so animated, it's a totally different experience). I also LOVED the chapters that were him reading in front of a live audience. It was like the show came to me!
