Calypso, by David Sedaris (Little Brown 2018)

Neil's picture

This is about the tenth collection that David Sedaris has written. He specialises in humorous, brilliantly observed true stories about his and his family's life and behaviour. This collection is perhaps darker than his previous books, but it is still extremely funny. He's now middle aged, and has a glimpse of mortality. Death has never seemed so funny, but he does also have an emotional touch.
