Sedaris’s latest update on his family and society brings the funny. Still, there’s growing depth and empathy in his writing and delivery. Sure, shooting guns with his sister and visiting his nonagenarian father bring laugh-out-loud moments. But profound reflections also pepper his writing as his tone and delivery match his heartrending observations. Sedaris chronicles the Covid-19 pandemic and all the absurdities of reactions to precautions. His voice matches the frustration and bewilderment of lockdown and life behind a mask. Listening is the best way to experience Sedaris’s new memoir. While fans will find themselves chuckling at times, there are other times when they will shake their heads and say to themselves, “That’s exactly the way it is.” R.O. 2023 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
