David Rakoff Half Empty 


We're having a discussion around the Utne offices to close out this eventful work week. Here's the question at hand: David Sedaris or David Rakoff? Though Sedaris is great, for my money Fraud, by Rakoff, is the best either writer has to offer. Now he's got a new one on the shelves: Half Empty. The best way to enjoy either of these writers–and this really isn't up for debateis to hear their words in their own voices, so enjoy the brief clip from Half Empty (Random House Audio) below. 

Extra: Watch Rakoff's recent appearance on The Daily Show, where he discusses finding out that he had a tumor while he was writing Half Empty.
