You may have heard him on the hugely popular BBC Radio 4 series *Meet David Sedaris* or you might be one of the millions worldwide who have read one of his many books.
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humour writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.
David 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. The audio version of *Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls* is a 56th Annual Grammy Awards Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album. He is the author of the NYT-bestselling collection of fables entitled *Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary* (with illustrations by Ian Falconer). He was also the editor of *Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories*. Sedaris’ pieces appear regularly in *The New Yorker* and have twice been included in *The Best American Essays*. There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
He and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name ‘The Talent Family’ and have written half-a-dozen plays which have been produced at La Mama, Lincoln Centre, and The Drama Department in New York City. These plays include *Stump the Host, Stitches, One Woman Shoe*, which received an Obie Award, *Incident at Cobbler’s Knob* and *The Book of Liz*, which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service. David Sedaris’s original radio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show *This American Life*. David Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album.
