One of America’s pre-eminent humor writers, David Sedaris returns to Dallas for the eleventh consecutive year to read new and unpublished material.  He is the master of satire and one of today’s most observant writers addressing the human condition. Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times bestseller, and a Washington Post Best Book of the Year.

Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, David Sedaris is the author of Barrel FeverHolidays on IceMe Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and DenimWhen You Are Engulfed in Flames, and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, among many others.  Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. There are over twelve million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 27 languages. As a companion piece to his New York Times bestselling book Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002), Jeffrey Jenkins published and edited an art book of Sedaris’s diary covers, entitled David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium. He is currently working on a second volume of his diaries.

Sedaris’s original audio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show This American Life. 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 droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world’s crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today.”
