David Sedaris

Monday, May 11, 7:30 p.m.

Location: McFarlin Auditorium, Southern Methodist University

Beloved satirist David Sedaris returns to Dallas for the eleventh consecutive year to read new and unpublished material, imparting his incisive social critiques and sharing his sardonic wit with devoted fans.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.

“There’s nobody quite like David Sedaris. He’s been likened to an American Alan Bennett, or an 'evil Garrison Keillor,' but neither is precisely right. . . . There isn’t a label for what he does; he’s the lone inhabitant of a category of his own invention.”
