Tracey Ullman Narrating the Latest David Sedaris Audiobook

David Sedaris’ latest book A Carnival of Snackery will be hitting shelves (and headphones) this October. And if you decide to go for the audiobook version of the book, you’ll be treated to a narration from actress and comedian Tracey Ullman. While Sedaris traditionally narrates his own works, this collaboration with Ullman was what Sedaris wanted for this particular book. He explained, “I knew early on that I wanted someone to read all the U.K. and Irish and Australian entries in this book. So much of what I’ve heard in those countries is funny specifically because of the way it was said…Then I thought, Well, since people think it’s a woman recording my audiobooks anywaywhy not get the real thing? A British woman who’s fun and patient and good at accents. Tracey Ullman.”
