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!

Boring

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

Listen to this!

David Sedaris leads a funny old life writes it down then reads it. There’s something comforting to hear him tell you how it happened in his own words. A great book recommended

He is just brilliant

David Sedaris has become a constant companion throughout lockdown. Even though I already know all the stories, I never tire of hearing him narrate them, he is just brilliant.
