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.
David Sedaris is the author of “Barrel Fever” and “Holidays on Ice,” as well as collections of personal essays, “Naked,” “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim,” and “When You Are Engulfed in Flames,” each of which became a bestseller. A film adaptation of one of his essays, “C.O.G.,” is currently in development and will begin filming in October.
There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in “The New Yorker” and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” His newest book, a collection of fables titled “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary” (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was published in September 2010 and immediately hit the New York Times Bestseller Fiction List. His next book is titled “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” and was published late spring 2013.
