Very Funny

David Sedaris has accompanied me on many trips to and home from work. His dry wit and humour is hilarious. Highly recommended

A unique talent

Perceptive, surreal, brilliant - a talent like no other. Makes me feel normal and laugh like no other.

A mixture of hilarious and touching anecdotes

I am a fan of David Sedaris and this collection of anecdotes did not disappoint. He makes me laugh out loud with his observations. What was new to me were some fictional stories where the characters were animals. They were beautifully written ( and narrated) and reminded me of Oscar Wilde's stories for children. His diary snippets are hilarious. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours.

Quite as brilliant as ever

I think everything he does is brilliant - but these spoken versions are the highest form - great selection of his best writing - presented with a mix of comic dead-pan and gleeful naughtiness - he’s equally charming and deeply flawed All the personal foibles and weaknesses - his own and his family’s are spread out and dissected I listen on a commute and regularly end up laughing out-loud Just brilliant :-)
