Beloved satirist David Sedaris returns to Dallas for the ninth consecutive year to read new and unpublished material, imparting his incisive social critiques and sharing his sardonic wit with devoted fans.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 humor writers, 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, Theft by Finding: Diaries 1977–2002 and the three-dimensional David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium, give insight into the author's private observations and personal experiences.
"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." —Chicago Tribune
