With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. His bestselling books include Barrel Fever, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Holidays on Ice and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls. Calypso, his 2018 collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller, and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year. The second volume of his diaries is expected in 2021.
“Sedaris’s droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world’s crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today.”—Chicago Tribune
