With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. He is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. His work appears regularly in The New Yorker and there are over 10 million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling collection of fables, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer). Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in The Best American Essays. His original radio pieces can often be heard on public radio's This American Life. He has been nominated for three GRAMMY Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. Click HERE for additional information. Photo by Ingrid Christie.
