Revue de presse :

Unquestionably the king of comic writing . . . Calypso is both funnier and more heartbreaking than pretty much anything out there (Hadley Freeman Guardian)

We get more of a glimpse than we have before of what lies behind the carapace of a writer who seems able to turn almost any situation to comic gold . . . [an] incredibly funny and sometimes moving meditation on love, death and family life, by a master of his craft (Sunday Times)

Entrancing . . . This book allows us to observed not just the nimble-mouthed elf of his previous work, but a man in his seventh decade expunging his darker secrets and contemplating mortality . . . The brilliance of David Sedaris's writing is that his very essence, his aura, seeps through the pages of his books like an intoxicating cloud, mesmerising us so that his logic becomes ours (Alan Cumming New York Times)

Calypso is another triumph from the dinner-table raconteur we all wish we could be, a writer whose lightness of touch makes you confront the hardest of truths - and laugh out loud (Esquire)

Hilarious and moving . . . Sedaris may well be the master of the deadpan delivery - there's plenty of laughing out loud while you read. But Calypso is also a tender portrait of a family, flawed - like any other - but doing their best to love each other (Lucy Scholes Independent)

This is a darker, deeper David Sedaris writing about 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

(Red)

Although Sedaris is famous for being funny, he does pain heartbreakingly well. His observations are wry and witty and eye-wateringly honest and you'll be so sad when it's over (Evening Standard)

First-rate comedy gold . . . For Sedaris, the boundary between light and dark is blurred. Life's pain and humiliation coexist in every living moment with its jollity and deliciousness. Which elevates his musings on the bodily and social travails of being a man in late middle age to a level of seriously sublime silliness. As ever, Sedaris's irreverent writing is a serious joy; this collection is a must for anyone with a strong stomach who needs a laugh (Melissa Katsoulis The Times)

Heartbreak and hilarity collide . . . [Calypso] captures the surrealism of the mundane and the funny old thing we like to call life (Attitude)

The American humourist's latest collection of pieces, about life's strange twists and turns, will have you shrieking with laughter and also, possibly, just shrieking (Mail on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

'Sedaris is the premier observer of our world and its weirdnesses' Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt

'He's like an American Alan Bennett' Guardian

A New York Times Notable Book of 2018


'Entrancing . . . This book allows us to observed not just the nimble-mouthed elf of his previous work, but a man in his seventh decade expunging his darker secrets and contemplating mortality . . . The brilliance of David Sedaris's writing is that his very essence, his aura, seeps through the pages of his books like an intoxicating cloud, mesmerising us so that his logic becomes ours' Alan Cumming, Scotsman

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 writing has 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 tumour joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris's darkest and warmest book yet - and it just might be his very best.
