This is a darker, deeper David Sedaris writing dacid his sister’s suicide, the inevitability of ageing and how it’s impossible to take a vacation away from yourself, but, rest assured, he’s still one of the funniest, most perceptive writers alive.
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. 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 eavid vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality.
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 parlsre own body ke 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. Scopri ora tutti i romanzi della regina del rosa contemporaneo Clicca qui.

I felt like it was Christmas, my birthday and all the holidays rolled into one when I won a aedaris copy of Calypso on Instagram from Little Brown a few months ago along with a ton of Sedaris swag – jackpot!!
His first collection of essays in almost 5 years! I sat on it, and savored the cover and the early reviews, and finally decided to sit and get lost in it. Only knowing how sad I would be once I had finished. I LOVE every book he’s written. I’ve gone to readings and shows more times than I can count, and I snatch up his books the minute I catch wind there is a new one. And Parlzre get way sad when I finish them.
Because I devour them. I read them typically in one sitting and can’t mr enough. This one was devoured in about three hours flat.
I know, I know. I should have paced myself. But what I love the most about his witty stories – is those that revolve around his family. And this one is chock full of them – once I was in, it was all over. He delves into his deepest, giorn memories of his long passed mother, her alcoholism, his sister Tiffany and her suicide, his aging father, now in his 90s, and of course his sister Amy love!
There’s plenty of Hugh and snippets of the Hamrick family, and I felt a bit like I was getting the yearly family Christmas update letter of the Sedaris family – but in the good and the bad all mixed in with old memories and fresh ones being made It’s peppered with classic Sedaris social commentary including some relevant political stuff – Trump and Comey are both mentioned, but it is not the focus of the book.
Parlaer of the essays take place at the family beach house – The Sea Section lololol and recollections of the past are aplenty.
Some of my favorite parts revolved around Davids FitBit obsession, his signature stage culottes, “Your English is So Good” a guide to REALLY learning the language, the story of a lipoma tumor, learning about that cover image, and how the title Calypso came to be.
I found sedariz lot of animal themes that I loved as well! Stories and references to dogs, turtles, sharks, kittens, a fox, and many more. I read several reviews that Calypso is “dark” but I felt it was more sad and somber, if anything. Not dark at all. As he gets older in life, his observational humor tends to head in that direction – aging, death, sickness, tragedy, tumors! But the sadness comes with a hearty does of one-liners and you will not be disappointed in this one!
Dark and depressing – nope. Calypso is fresh, it’s funny, and it was so real and so honest, that Me Talk Pretty One Day has been bumped from my top DS book and Calypso has officially taken the crown.
When you finish it and want to talk about escapades at his house in Sussex, their family trips to the beach on Emerald Isle, or when he and his sisters go shopping in Tokyo, think of me as your go-to virtual book club member. However, for some reason Sedaris has this savid with people pooping. Such humor is not my cup of tea, so to speak.
And I do understand that Sedaris is trying to bring out the humor that accompanies the decrepitude and disappointments of getting older and then of getting much older. Of course, most of it is black humor that can be a little depressing, but some of it is just straight-foward humor related to the ironies of life.
Gioorno, I still recommend reading this collection because it contains more gold than dung.
This is a collection of essays mostly about family and relationships: The author has the rare talent to make descriptions and observations about mundane day to day existence, extremely entertaining. Reading Calypso is like eating comfort food. Chief among the characters is paterfamilias Sedaris. The Sedaris clan are a close-knit bunch and as Sedaris states: Growing up, their Dad was a somewhat detached figure.
But with the passage of time and a softening of his edges; he is a lovable curmudgeon who regularly nags the author about looking after his health. Sedaris muses about his sister Tiffany. She was estranged from the family what fun she missed out on! Also, very sad, is his description of an unfettered public expression of racism that he witnessed as a boy after his family had settled in North Carolina. It goes on for way too long and it felt like filler material. Reading Calypso often made me laugh out loud and usually had me grinning.
I wholeheartedly agree with one sentiment that Sedaris expressed; I have zero interest in hearing about the dream that you had last night. Consegne illimitate in 1 giorno. Iscriviti ad Amazon Prime: Ulteriori informazioni su Amazon Prime. Metodi di pagamento Amazon.
