Derisive and sharp, David Sedaris is one of America's most outstanding comic writers. With a masterful command of satire and a penchant for withering social observation, his is a rare voice which stands out from the deafening chorus of attention-seeking commentators today.
Sedaris' collections of personal essays Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, and Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls have all become bestsellers, and he is a routine contributor to the likes of The New Yorker.
His latest book, Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002), skilfully presents a selection of his own diary entries for a provocative look inside one of the great minds of our generation. Simply put: cultural euphemisms and political correctness don't stand a chance under Sedaris' critical gaze, and since he delivers everything he notices with a heaping dose of wickedly smart humour, you can't help but wait to hear what he has to say next.
Join him for an intimate evening of questions, answers and more than a few points at the National Concert Hall.
