Calypso by David Sedaris | Conversation Starters

American comedian and author David Sedaris relases his latest book Calypso. Sedaris writes a new collection of humorous stories on mortality and middle age. Sedaris starts with his purchase of new beach property in Carolina. His new property is on Carolina coast and he names it his vacation home Sea Section. He had visions of relaxing afternoons with a refreshing drink under the warm Carolina sun. It was perfect. However, he realized his vacation will be impossible because he couldn’t have a vacation from himself. Sedaris then shares his funny observations about middle age and life. Sedaris will make the readers laugh the way only family can. His humor comes from that moment when his own body betrays him and he realizes that his life is really made up of the past.

Mail Online praises Sedaris’s work and described it as “firmly grounded in the present, but with the same sense of twisted nostalgia.” Guardian’s Hadley Freeman compares Calypso to other books out there and says that it is “funnier and more heartbreaking.”
