David Sedaris' remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life is surpassed only by his ability to make his stories even more hilarious when he reads them aloud.
This is the complete recording of Meet David Sedaris Series Five for Radio 4, and he reads essays from several of his books as well as many brand-new diary pieces and extras.
The full listing is: 'Episode One: The Understudy; Big Boy', 'Episode Two: Stepping Out; The Vigilant Rabbit', 'Episode Three: Leviathan', 'Episode Four: Little Guy; The Ones That Got Away; Now Hiring Friendly People', 'Episode Five: Calypso; Follow Me', 'Episode Six: Loggerheads'.
As always the selection fits the words "David Sedaris' remarkable ability to uncover the hilarious absurdity teeming just below the surface of everyday life ..."
But this time (e.g. Series Five) he brings a lot of new material, so this collection is not just a compilation of his previous Audiobooks.
Recommended with great joy !
