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, and his most recent book, "Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls," each of which became an immediate bestseller. He is the author of the New York Times-bestselling collection of fables titled "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary." He was also the editor of "Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories." Sedaris' pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in "The Best American Essays."
