Sedaris proceeds from the bizzare conundrums of daily life -- the ettiquete of having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger or how to soundproof your windows against neurotic songbirds with LP covers -- to the most deeply resonant human truths.

This isn't my favorite Sedaris book, but his witty humor always makes me laugh. This audiobook was good company on a very long flight across the Pacific.

Consistently great, Sedaris does it again with this group of essays encompassing his skillful wit, humor, and emotion. It is such a joy to hear Sedaris read his own work, as he animates the text like no other, making one feel as if he is telling the story just for you. Definitely recommend.

Be very, VERY careful where you listen to this. In the privacy of your own home or car - go for it. Walking down the street or on the bus through headphones - be careful, you run the risk of either choking from trying to not laugh, or get some strange looks for laughing like a loon for no apparent reason.

It's David Sedaris reading his own essays. They're funny, sometimes sweet, mostly witty and intelligent. It's pretty much what you would expect; fortunately, that's pretty darned good.
