With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, his pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” There are over twelve million copies of his books in print. In 2020 the New York Public Library voted Me Talk Pretty One Day one of the 125 most important books of the last 125 years. Sedaris’s original audio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show This American Life. He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. In 2019 David Sedaris became a regular contributor to CBS Sunday Morning. 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.
