Barrel Fever and Other Stories
3 journalers for this copy...
I adore David Sedaris' works and I can't wait to listen to both David and Amy read these stories! Thanks!
I didn't love this quite as much as some of his others, but I still laughed out loud quite a few times. The mix of fiction and nonfiction was interesting- but it was difficult to tell in an audio recording which was which for the first few paragraphs of each story. I loved the nonfiction the best (why is it that his family is SO much funnier than mine? LOL!) but the fictional stories were definitely interesting, too- and it was neat how I noticed bits of his life jumping into the fiction stories.
I have a copy of the book as well, and notice that a few stories in the book don't appear on the tapes, even though it doesn't say abridged. The order of stories is also different, which is strange and probably contributed to my being confused (not knowing which was an essay and which was a story at first). So I'm going to read the book as well.
Still... there's nothing like listening to David, and Amy was great to hear, too! (It's my first time hearing her on one of the recordings, though I'm no stranger to Strangers with Candy) Definitely a fun experience and lots of great laughs :-)
I hope whoever finds it, enjoys it!
