For forty years, David Sedaris has kept a diary in which he records everything that captures his attention-overheard comments, salacious gossip, soap opera plot twists, secrets confided by total strangers. These observations are the source code for his finest work, and through them he has honed his cunning, surprising sentences. Now, Sedaris shares his private writings with the world.

Lots to love if you're already a Sedaris fan, as his diary (especially the later entries) are not that different from his other autobiographical works. I enjoyed hearing more about his life around the time that he was working on and releasing other books I've read. Laughed out loud while listening in my car many times, and I got a kick out of hearing familiar theme songs from NPR worked into the audiobook!

I highly recommend listening to the audio version of any of Sedaris' books. The text is funny on its own but he really delivers it well when reading. This is the first part of selected diary entries Sedaris has been keeping for the past forty years. There are some serious entries but many feature humor and absurdity in the everyday.
