MICROTHRILLS True Stories From a Life of Small Highs

by | Read by Wendy Spero

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Wendy Spero is a stand-up comedian whose meticulous, meandering reflections on her quirky, neurotic life may remind listeners of David Sedaris. Like Sedaris, Spero has an amazing memory for the minutiae of her childhood, and she interweaves story after loving story about her family. Though Spero is great at voices, especially her mother's nasal drone and her own younger voices, listeners are more likely to smile than laugh out loud at these tales. Spero's dry wit emphasizes the interesting observation over the outright funny story. At over six hours, this audio performance also suffers from a lack of focus; the time constraints of a live performance would suit her style much better.
