⑄ Early reader series ⑭ Author David Sedaris ┄ ⑄ Early reader series ⑭ Author David Sedaris ┄ An Best Book of June 2018 Reading ruminations on middle age and mortality is not typically a cheery exercise, unless David Sedaris is doing the writing Many of the essays in Calypso are set at the Sea SectionSedariss retreat on the Carolina coast There, his family whiles away the holidays playing cutthroat board games, baking in the sun, and feeding tumors to snapping turtles yes, you read that right In others, he describes shopping shenanigans in Japan you can thank him for the resurgence of the culotte, or not , his unhealthy Fitbit obsession, and a side vocation picking up trash near his Sussex home All provide the sort of everyday fodder that is ripe for his beloved brand of witty repartee But Calypso is as dark as it is droll it also touches on his late mothers alcoholism, his sisters suicide, and a sometimes strained relationship with an irascible father Any one of these things could fracture a family but its clear from these pages that their bond is strong Calypso is David Sedariss funniest, most outrageous, most moving offering yet Erin Kodicek, Book ReviewThis book allows us to observe not just the nimble mouthed elf of Sedaris s previous work, but a man in his seventh decade expunging his darker secrets and contemplating mortalityThe brilliance of David Sedaris

treating us to a story about the persnickety doctor who refused to let him keep a noncancerous tumor that he d planned to feed to a snapping turtle once removed We can only assume that the audiobook
