    Demetri reminds me a bit of Mitch Hedberg; he has offbeat observations; and a wickedly dry delivery. This was a great listen; after the joke parts there are a couple of songs he does which are both annoying and funny; this is mostly clean humor, there are a few f words, but very few; thus, you may not want to play it with the kids in the car. really quite enjoyable; have recommended to several others who have also really liked it.

  • The John Updike Audio Collection

    Story

    The extraordinarily evocative stories depict the generation born in a small-town America during the Depression and growing up in a world where the old sexual morality was turned around and material comforts were easily had. Yet, as these stories reflect so accurately, life was still unsettling, and Updike chronicles telling moments both joyful and painful. The texts are taken from his recent omnibus, The Early Stories, 1953-1975.

    This was a good read; I like short stories, and these were very evocative. I especially liked the connected short stories. The narrators all did an excellent job. The subject matter is intriguing; relationships mostly, and poignant and funny at the same time.
