Summary

"You will be the father of kings...." A prophecy to a 16-year-old blacksmith’s son sends Trygare kan Ingan from his home in the Cymenean glyns, armed only with his father’s sword.  Being Godchosen isn’t easy. The woman he wants doesn’t want him, the man who should be his best friend thinks him laughable, and everyone ridicules his youth, to say nothing of his glyndweller accent. Slaying a dragon and defending the country from invaders changes their minds, and things are going nicely, but then the gods interfere... Tragedy strikes, sending Trygare to a foreign land where his true destiny lies...to become the ancestor of a dynasty that will rule his planet for three thousand years.  Combine Conan the Barbarian with Skyrim, add a dash of Game of Thrones, and the result will be this epic chronicle of the kan Ingan empire.

Summary

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 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.

Summary

Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the current mania for the memoir on its proverbial ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview, a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course!) with a quadriplegic companion. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without a doubt one of the freshest in American writing.

The Best of Second City, Volume 2

Summary

Since 1959, Chicago's The Second City improvisational comedy troupe has played a critical role in developing some of the most successful comedians in the United States and Canada. Comedians such as Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, James Belushi, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, and Richard Kind, to name a few, have all performed with The Second City. Between 1991 and 1997, L.A. Theatre Works, in conjunction with Chicago Theatres on the Air, had the pleasure of producing a number of Second City performances featuring Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Amy Sedaris, Marsha Mason, Edward Asner, and Paul Dinelo. Colbert, Dinelo, and Sedaris went on to create the hit show Strangers With Candy for Comedy Central, and Amy's best-selling book, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is both witty and hilarious. More recently, both Carell and Colbert have enjoyed immense success beginning with their supporting roles in The Daily Show. Carell's show, The Office, is a hit on NBC, and his movies are box office boffos. Colbert has spun his Daily Show character off into his own highly successful The Colbert Report. Hear these budding young comedians in some of their most hilarious work before they became the stars they are today.
