If you were lucky enough to have caught a performance on David Sedaris's most recent sold-out, 34-city tour, you already know that David Sedaris Live For Your Listening Pleasure is a must-have album! If you didn't hear it live and in person, then you're in for a treat-hilarious brand-new recordings from performances in Denver, New York, Durham, LA, and Atlanta, in one convenient audiobook collection, on sale November 24 for only $17.98.

Editorial Reviews

"A master of the pregnant pause and king of cockeyed deadpan, Sedaris is at the top of his game in these five live performances...The brisk and endlessly entertaining listen again proves that mere readers of Sedaris are missing out."
