This weekend I was introduced to the writings and readings of David Sedaris.. who I must say, is absolutely brilliant. We had spent a good part of Sunday morning looking for recordings of his on the internet, and came across quite a few. Since I often convince myself that when I think something is brilliant that everyone else should agree with me, here is a collected list of our findings.
David Sedaris – Diary of a Smoker (NPR Morning Edition) – mp3
David Sedaris – French Lessons – mp3
David Sedaris – Big Boy – mp3
David Sedaris – "The Youth in Asia" and "The Learning Curve" – mp3 (this one is pretty long)
I also created a playlist of the videos I could find on youtube – it includes:
David Sedaris on Letterman talking about the "Stadium Pal"
"Bend Over and Say 'Ah'" – from David Sedaris' "Me Talk Pretty One Day"
"The Squirrel and the Chipmunk"
and "Six to eight black men"
