Length: 17 hours 8 minutes

A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice
Finalist for the Audie Award in Humor

There’s no right way to keep a diary, but if there’s an entertaining way, David Sedaris seems to have mas­tered it.

Calypso

By: David Sedaris
Narrated by: David Sedaris

Perhaps one of Sedaris's more vulnerable and emotional windows into the Sedaris... Read more
