Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris, Read by the author
I wasn't as impressed by this collection from Sedaris, but a few of the stories cracked me up. SantaLand Diaries is a classic, as well as Jesus Shaves. But, um, "The Monster Mash" was kinda gross to listen to. Anything about his time working in a medical examiner's office has to be, right? Sedaris even writes a fable called "The Cow and the Turkey" about gift giving and what's for Christmas dinner. I did discover that I like listening to his live productions better--his pacing in front of a live audience is so much better than when reading in a studio.
