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.

  • I can’t get enough of Sedaris

    I’ve read all his books and they never disappoint me. Calypso has immediately become one of my favorites. It has some very sad stories about serious events, which he narrates with sensitivity and beauty, but as always, it’s the comedy that kills.
    Is wish his books were at least 400 hour-long.

  • David, thank you.

    A love letter to David:

    You've carried me through Christmas withouty family, laughing with your unabridged honesty. You've carried me through a car during a miscarriage on an 8 hour drive with your fury at the coveted bulkhead seats. And now, you've cracked open my soul. Thank you for being the vulnerable, honest human we so seldom find in a world of performance. Thank you for your vulnerability. Thank you for your honesty. Thank you for your unforgiving, uninhibited, distant friendship. Thank you.

  • Excellent, as always

    I listen to every David Sedaris book, rather than read them. You should, too. The inflection, the cadence is 50% of the pleasure of his books! I found myself both laughing AND crying at turns in this one, which can be awkward when you're listening while out walking your dog in public. Maniacally laughing while walking alone in a German neighborhood will possibly get you committed, but I did it anyway. A gem of a book, with all the biting humor we love. I love that he never spares himself in his stories, I can relate to his quirks of nature. My only complaint is that it was such a quick read, I'm in a low-grade state of depression that it's over. Anxiously waiting the next one!
