David Sedaris returns with his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious book. If you've ever laughed your way through David Sedaris's 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. With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny--it's a book that can make you laugh 'til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris's powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future. This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet--and it just might be his very best.… (mais)

I've been a fan of David Sedaris for a long time, but this collection isn't his best work. Some of it is more mature and thoughtful, like his story about his mother's alcoholism, and he is reflective in his piece about his sister's suicide. But in several places, it feels like he tips from funny into mean in ways he hasn't before. ( )

Typical crass, irreverent, funny, funny Sedaris. A great and crazy family in insightful stories. Laugh out loud crazy. ( )

This book kicked off my summer reading obsession and it was a good way to start! Very funny yet poignant depiction of familial relationships and how they shift with age. A manageable read that got me laughing and thinking. ( )

lots of very funny moments. We ought to throw this man a parade (that will surely embarrass him). ( )

I loved this book! I’m not sure how I’d compare it to his other collections since every single one is a favorite of mine, but I did crack up in public many times. Also when I was reading this at a lounge and someone noticed this book in my hands, they asked if they could read an essay aloud and the whole room hushed as he read about David’s Fitbit, which I found to be a testament of David’s rawness and humor.

I will say that the tumor turtle made me a little uncomfortable because ummmm... why! I just kept wondering, “David are you okay?”

It’s Sedaris. Need I say more? ( )

The author’s fans and newcomers alike will be richly rewarded by this sidesplitting collection.

In which the veteran humorist enters middle age with fine snark but some trepidation as well.
