Synopses & Reviews
In David Sedaris's world, no one is safe and no cow is sacred. Sedaris's collection of essays and stories is a rollicking tour through the national Zeitgeist: a do-it-yourself suburban dad saves money by performing home surgery; a man who is loved too much flees the heavyweight champion of the world; a teenage suicide tries to incite a lynch mob at her funeral; a bitter Santa abuses the elves. With a perfect eye and a voice infused with as much empathy as wit, Sedaris writes stories and essays that target the soulful ridiculousness of our behavior. Barrel Fever is like a blind date with modern life, and anything can happen.
David Sedaris' first collection of comic stories and essays. Performed by the author and his sister Amy, this program is described by the "New York Post" as "a nuclear barrage of humor you could never replicate by reading this material on your own". Abridged. 3 CDs.
