Three Audiobooks by David Sedaris

This month’s “reading” so far involves a few audiobooks. I have a boxed set of audiobooks by David Sedaris in CD form. They are abridged, or at least most of them are, so they shouldn’t count as complete books, but they count for something, I guess.

In print, I’ve been reading Fred Pohl’s later Heechee books. I’m most of the way through Heechee Rendezvous. These later installments just aren’t quite as interesting as Gateway. I have a copy of The Annals of the Heechee waiting, but it remains to be seen if I’ll dive into that one, or put it on the shelf.

Neurotribes: the Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman

I’ve been reading Neurotribes: the Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman, and so far it is an excellent book. There are a few inexplicable editing problems, where he refers to a character by last name that he has not introduced yet. But fortunately I have only found a handful of these puzzling occurrences. I assume they might be fixed up in the paperback. As a father of autistic children and someone who probably qualifies as on the spectrum myself, I believe this is a significant book, and I’ll have more to say about it later. Onward to another week!
