Calypso by David Sedaris 259 pages

If you are a David Sedaris fan-and I am-you must read his newest book of essays.  The focal point is his home on Emerald Isle, North Carolina that he named The Sea Section.  The past few Thanksgivings Sedaris, his partner, his father, and his three sisters as well as his brother, his brother’s wife and their daughter celebrate there.  From something one of these individuals says or does, he segues into such topics as Fitbits, a fox named Carol, and what it must be like to be on an airplane with stomach flu.  Even the family tragedies that he describes are interspersed with humorous anecdotes about himself and the human condition.  Many paragraphs in Calypso are laugh out loud funny! I promise.
