Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the current mania for the memoir on its proverbial ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview, a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course!) with a quadriplegic companion. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without a doubt one of the freshest in American writing.More
"Sidesplitting." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Genuinely funny, at times hilarious....Makes for a smashing use of audio as a unique entertainment medium....Highly likable and spirited throughout...makes a case for audio as its own special form." (Publishers Weekly)
"Sedaris is a gifted satirist with an uncanny knack for re-creating dialogue and revealing fantasies....Brutally honest and brilliantly eloquent, Sedaris is positively tonic." (Booklist)

My Favorite Sedaris
Not the whole book
This audiobook is lacking some chapters of the actual printed book... I was reading it on paper but after several days of not picking it up I realized I was never going to finnish it, I was too disinterested. Normally I would just start another book but since I have listened to some of David's readings I thought I should finnish it as an audiobook. And oh surprise! the chapter I was in is not even on this audiobook.
I didn't listen to the whole book, but I'm sure it's lacking at least these chapters:
Dinah, the Christmas Whore
Planet of the Apes
The Incomplete Quad
Something for Everyone
Now that I think about it it's obvious, it's impossible for it to be complete and 3 hours long.
The story is pretty funny in a way only David Sedaris can be.
