Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

David Sedaris's familiar voice and delivery make everything he writes funnier, odder, and more poignant. (And if his voice isn't familiar, run, don't walk, to find any of his recordings.) In this latest collection of personal essays and commentary, listeners get Sedaris the world traveler—exploring China dubiously, overhearing American tourists in France, dealing with customs agents in England, delving into the strange landscapes of his own family and childhood in North Carolina. Sedaris knows how to make the most of the material, perfectly emphasizing every punch line, gross-out, and auditory double take. A few live recordings, complete with an appreciative audience, are interspersed with the studio readings. J.M.D. 2014 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
