If you were lucky enough to have caught a performance on David Sedaris's most recent sold-out, 34-city tour, you already know that David Sedaris Live For Your Listening Pleasure is a must-have album! If you didn't hear it live and in person, then you're in for a treat-hilarious brand-new recordings from performances in Denver, New York, Durham, LA, and Atlanta, in one convenient audiobook collection, on sale November 24 for only $17.98.
From the bold feral rabbits of his French backyard to the eating habits of a carnivorous bird Down Under, Live For Your Listening Pleasure takes listeners on a veritable tour of natural wonders, beginning with a fable, "Cat and Baboon," and moving on to the peculiarly American habitat of the "big-box" store.
"Sedaris's sparkling essays always shimmer more brightly when read aloud by the author. And his expert timing, mimicry and droll asides are never more polished than during live performances in front of an audience." Publishers Weekly, Starred Review - When You Are Engulfed in Flames

David Sedaris has become a Christmas tradition, at least for this listener--it just doesn't feel like the holidays unless I'm hearing one of his hilarious, and hilariously inappropriate, stories. At just over an hour long, this collection is like a Sedaris sampler platter, just right for bite-sized listening--three short, funny stories; "Laugh, Kookaburra," which is longer and more serious (and lovely); and some brief diary entries, all recorded live at venues around the country. As always, Sedaris is in fine form reading his own material--he has great comic timing, and the addition of appreciative live audiences is welcome, enhancing his performance and making listeners feel like they're laughing right along with the rest of a crowded auditorium.
