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

I was laughing and smiling through most of the stories; its certainly a nice entertainment. I was a little annoyed by his high-pitched voice, and I was surprised he was able to make, with little or no flack it seems, disparaging remarks about one of the most privileged (as in invincible or immune from any criticism or comment except praise and sympathy) groups around: homosexual men.

I enjoyed this book while driving. Laughing out load while I drove must of looked a little strange to other drivers. Very witty and fun to listen to.
