Calypso by David Sedaris is one of our Top Ten Audiobooks of 2018. It is a hilarious audiobook, read by the author himself. And if you’ve ever laughed your way through his cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting with Calypso. You’d be wrong.
When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it’s impossible to take a vacation from yourself.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and then you’ll listen to the audiobook forty times over again.[/pb_blockquote]
