David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure (CD-Audio)David Sedaris (author)
- We can order this
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
