    In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    Overall

    I've found Mr. Sedaris's segments from THIS AMERICAN LIFE quite funny. Based on those stories, I purchased DRESS YOUR FAMILY. Boy, was I in for a surprise! The "fun" in Mr. Sedaris's stories has now been replaced with mean-spirited portrayals of family life and adult interpretations of the homosexual leanings of a 12 year-old. Basically, this is apparently a publication by the spirit of a pissed-off, 12 year-old gay kid. "Family listening" isn't the category for this work. Look under "sarcastic gay dark humor".

    Overall

    In comparison to some of the other monthly subscriptions I've heard during my Audible subscription, YOUR MAC LIFE is at the bottom of my list of programs I'd renew. The hosts attempt promoting a happy, chatting atmosphere but the chatting has no direction or content. The questioners in promoted show interviews don't appear to have written their questions for guests down beforehand and as a result, the interviews seem to just wander about, without direction. The guests being interviewed don't appear to have been given a copy of the intended questions so they can provide timely and informative responses. It doesn't even appear the guests have any idea what's to be discussed. Finally, the production of the show leaves alot to be desired. Volume of the voices of guests doesn't come close to matching that of the hosts, making listening difficult. I've been a Mac user since 1986 and would really like to recommend this show, but I can't do that.
