In David Sedaris’ world, no one is safe and no cow is sacred. A manic cross between Mark Leyner, Fran Lebowitz, and the National Enquirer, Sedaris’ collection of stories and essays is a rollicking tour through the national Zeitgeist. A do-it-yourself suburban dad saves money by performing home surgery, a man who is loved too much flees the heavyweight champion of the world, a teenage suicide tries to incite a lynch mob at her funeral, a bitter Santa abuses the elves.

David Sedaris made his debut on NPR’s Morning Edition with “SantaLand Diaries,” recounting his strange-but-true experiences as an elf at Macy’s and soon became one of the show’s most popular commentators. With a perfect eye and a voice infused with as much empathy as wit, Sedaris writes stories and essays that target the soulful ridiculousness of our behavior. Barrel Fever is like a blind date with modern life, and anything can happen.
