Not as perfect as his early stories---but what are you gonna do?
Davis Sedaris always makes me laugh----and this selection did too, even though overall it wasn't as good as some previous works. Once you hear his delivery a few times, and know what his story lines are like, you do expect a certain level of entertainment. He just didn't sound like he put all his effort into this one. Also, there is one duplicate story about the Kookaburra, but this is a shortened version, leaving out the part where he and his sister sing in bed.
I thought the music between sections was a little odd, and too long, so hope that changes in the future. However, his type of humor is such genius, and so unique, that I couldn't really fault him too much. I hope his next offering brings back the level of well thought out stories such as those in When You are Engulfed in Flames, which was probably his best.
