David Sedaris on audio is a true treat. Sedaris began keeping a diary in 1977. His early entries reveal a young man adrift, hitch hiking back and forth across the country, picking fruit, painting. and cleaning houses for a living, all the while doing too many drugs and grappling with his sexuality. Eventually, he goes back to college, gets a degree, and gets himself to New York, where in short order he meets Hugh and becomes a Macy’s Santaland elf. What is so wonderful here is that he grows as a writer. Later entries show the polished, funny, sardonic writer we expect. I cannot wait to read (listen to) the later entries when they are published.
