The Best of Me

The Best of Me

This new collection of David Sedaris' essays and stories will be familiar to any fan, and I enjoyed revisiting them. His fiction stories are always too absurdist for my taste--you can safely skip those if you feel the same.

For those who love the stories of his life and family, though, this is is a nice journey through the years. The essays, including one new one, get more poignant toward the end, as Sedaris reflects on their lives and the family members who have passed away. I do always enjoy Sedaris more on audio--his delivery makes the stories even funnier--and if you can, I recommend listening to this instead of reading.
