Beloved satirist David Sedaris returns to Dallas for the tenth consecutive year to read new and unpublished material, imparting his incisive social critiques and sharing his sardonic wit with devoted fans. Hailed as the “rock star of writers,” Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humorists, with bestselling books such as Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays including Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim. Sedaris’s work appears regularly in The New Yorker and on the public radio show This American Life, and has twice been included in The Best American Essays.
Ten million copies of his books are in print, and his work has been translated into 25 languages. Sedaris’s two newest books, Calypso and Theft by Finding: Diaries (1977–2002), give deeply personal and darkly hilarious insight into his private observations and personal experiences.
“The brilliance of David Sedaris's writing is that his very essence, his aura, seeps through the pages of his books like an intoxicating cloud, mesmerizing us so that his logic becomes ours. . . . The geeks really do inherit the earth."
—Alan Cumming, New York Times Book Review
