Opinion

From Library Staff

Actually, listen to or read anything by David Sedaris. Short, salty and funny essays that are especially good on audiobook.

Traces the author's offbeat world travel experiences, which involved surreal encounters with everything from French dentistry and Australian kookaburra eating habits to Beijing squat toilets and a wilderness Costco in North Carolina. Also available in downloadable audio book.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Having never read anything else by Sedaris before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew he wrote short stories about his own experiences, and that they were supposed to be funny. I chose the audio book, and I'm so glad I did: Sedaris was reading the stories himself, and I feel that really added to them. He's a great story teller, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another one of his books."
