David Sedaris - 14 CD Boxed Setby David Sedaris, Author (Read by), Hachette Assorted Authors (Read by)
Barrel Fever is Sedaris' first collection of comic stories and essays. /b>
Hailed by The New Yorker as one of the funniest writers in America, "whose satirical brazenness holds up to Twain and Nathaniel West," David Sedaris has delighted National Public Radio listeners for years. Now collected in a convenient box set, he gives voice to his biting sensibility.
Barrel Fever is Sedaris' first collection of comic stories and essays. Performed by David Sedaris, and his sister, Amy Sedaris, this program is described by the New York Post as "a nuclear barrage of humor you could never replicate by reading this material on your own."
In Holidays on Ice, Sedaris skewers the absurd conventions and contrivances of the holiday season, with hilarious effect. Listener-favorite "SantaLand Diaries" joins new seasonal material that sparkles with imagination. Special guest Ann Magnuson performs "Merry Christmas to our Friends and Family" and Amy Sedaris also peppers the stories with comical characters.
Naked is a riotous compilation of stories also performed by David and Amy Sedaris. Publishers Weekly praised this program's "smashing use of the audio as a unique entertainment medium" and called the performances "highly likeable and spirited throughout." They also named it one of the "best of the best" tapes of the year and deemed it "worthy of multiple listens."
Me Talk Pretty One Day combines pieces that have appeared in Esquire and The New Yorker, with extraordinary new material and uproarious live performances. Traveling from his childhood in North Carolina, to a second linguistic childhood as a non French-speaking citizen of Paris, these essays combine poignancy and humor in equal measure.
