All Stories Are Fiction: Where Water Meets With Water

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him "the master storyteller" and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.

Publisher's Summary

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him "the master storyteller" and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.

In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York's Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech.

In Where Water Meets With Water, Mike explores the geography of his hometown in far northern Maine, where the natives wait for the St. John's River's ice to melt every spring and barber shops are filled with talk of how many bodies of the winter's lost will be found headed out to sea. Playing counterpoint are the details of a new Manhattan institution: a divorce party for friends who want their marriage to disintegrate cleanly.

Listen to all seven of Mike Daisey's All Stories Are Fiction.

What the Critics Say

"Comic delivery so sharp it draws blood." (San Jose Mercury News)
"Irresistible storytelling...elevating and hilarious." (San Francisco Weekly)
"Daisey is a brainy, manic hoot, a blond, owl-shaped cross between cultural critic Noam Chomsky and rambunctious actor-rocker Jack Black." (The Seattle Times)
"Relentlessly interesting...brilliantly spun narrative...Daisey has the kind of timing and dramatic instinct that would make the most mundane story interesting." (The New York Times)
