With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent 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.
Likened to a modern-day Mark Twain, Sedaris is noted for his ability to draw humorous, touching and universal observations about human nature from his own, often quirky experiences. A former National Public Radio host, he has become a best-selling author with titles such as Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy, When You Are Engulfed in Flames,Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary,Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, and Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977-2002). His latest book is entitled Calypso.
