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 Games People Play, games in all their forms are center stage, from the mysterious card game "Stinko!", beloved by Mike's in-laws; to the rough games played with brothers and sisters; to a dangerous childhood friend who loved driving back roads at night with the lights off, looking for oblivion in all the wrong places.
Listen to all seven of Mike Daisey's All Stories Are Fiction.

"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)
