Very funny essays - well observed & delivered with great timing. These articles will make you at least smile - made me laugh & I was sorry when it finished.

David sedaris

From the time I first heard David Sedaris, I couldn't wait until his next tale, of family, friends and his life..from the laugh out loud to the touching moments, thoroughly enjoy every moment, won't stop until I have his whole collection, wonderfully written and wonderfully read.

Boring

Monotonous rendition of mediocre materials. Surprised by others’ glorious reviews. Perhaps you m just not getting the jokes.

So funny!

Exceptionally funny, wry and brilliantly observant, David Sedaris and his great family make for wonderful listening.

Love this man!

I love listening to this guy! I discovered him by accident on Radio 4 and now have all four recordings. he's very funny, tongue in cheek, dry sense of humor and I'm lucky enough to be going to see - hear him read live in June!

Sedaris is a man made from funny bones

Inappropriate, at times shockingly so, Sadaris is going to entertain you. I have bought all 5 in the series and have loved them all. He is a funny man,who enjoys sharing his very funny stories.
