Libro.fm is proud to present our monthly audiobook bestseller list that captures what’s selling in independent bookstores.
For many, it has become a holiday tradition to gather around whatever audio output device everyone now uses and listen to writer and humorist David Sedaris read the essay that made him famous: SantaLand Diaries. First read by Sedaris on NPR in 1992, SantaLand Diaries recalls Sedaris’ experiences the two years he was employed by Macy’s as a Christmas elf. With grim humor and dead-on observations, SantaLand Diaries set Sedaris on a trajectory of becoming one of America’s foremost humor writers.
Calypso by David Sedaris 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.
