Naked is David Sedaris’s 2001 take on his life at the time… reminiscing about teachers, camp, his sexuality, family life you name it David probably has covered it.
I started listening to David Sedaris last year with his Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls. His matter of fact humor left me wanting more and I have followed up with a couple more of his books on audio (he narrates them himself which makes them even more fun).
Naked is a short three-hour listen and while it has its moments,
“We were not a hugging people. In terms of emotional comfort it was our belief that no amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well made cocktail.”
While I did enjoy David, the addition of his sister in this audio I found to be a harsh contrast as she handled the voices of teachers and I think at times herself to David’s steady rhythmic tone. I have found I enjoy his narration alone much better.
Still… looking for a fun quick laugh…. give it a try. 🙂
