Ca­lypso

(HACHETTE)

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Rd Recommends - David Sedaris

Fans of this Amer­i­can hu­mourist will be sur­prised by a darker take on his new­est col­lec­tion of short es­says. Au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal sto­ries fo­cus on the stark re­al­ity of mid­dle age and poignant fam­ily dilem­mas; his self­dep­re­cat­ing hu­mour ever present. Sedaris has an un­healthy health ob­ses­sion, in­ces­santly track­ing his steps with his Fit­bit. His ir­rev­er­ent ban­ter cov­ers mat­ters such as how it is im­pos­si­ble to take a hol­i­day from your­self and ob­serv­ing in­sults drivers hurl in traf­fic. It’s a cracker.
