*Arc Review* Calypso- David Sedaris

“It’s so funny to be called an asshole by someone who doesn’t know you, but then again knows you so perfectly.”

It’s never a dull moment when you’re reading anything by David Sedaris. It brightens your dark and gloomy days.

This is one of those books where you get something more from the author. Something that he doesn’t share that often in his books. We get up close and personal, a look into his life as the fearing old man that he claims to be.

David does this thing where he makes you laugh at things that you really shouldn’t be laughing at. I know, I know, he made me make my place in hell and I’m definitely okay with that if it means that I get to hysterically laugh at his stories. Then he does something else entirely surprising, he makes me think. He has me thinking to the point where I wake up in the middle of the night just to talk to myself about the points he has made.

He has a true gift and it shines brightly in this collection. He held nothing back and powered through with pure emotion and hilarity. I would love to be a fly on his wall for a few days.
