With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of
America’s pre-eminent humor writers. 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 best-seller, and a Washington Post Best
Book of the Year. The audiobook of Calypso has been nominated for a 2019
Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category.


Beloved for his personal essays and short stories, David Sedaris is the author of
Barrel Fever, Holidays on Ice, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family
in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Let’s Explore Diabetes
with Owls, and Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002). He is the author of Squirrel
Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of fables with illustrations by Ian
Falconer. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. He was also the editor
of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding
Stories. His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been
included in “The Best American Essays.” There are over twelve million copies of his
books in print and they have been translated into 27 languages. In 2018 he was
awarded the Terry Southern Prize for Humor, as well as the Medal for Spoken
Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In March 2019 he was
elected as a member into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. 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

.
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 Center, 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.
Sedaris’s original audio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show This
American Life. He has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken

Word and Best Comedy Album. His latest audio recording of new stories (recorded
live) is “David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure” (November 2009). A
feature film adaptation of his story C.O.G. was released after a premiere at the
Sundance Film Festival (2013). Since 2011, he can be heard annually on a series
of live recordings on BBC Radio 4 entitled “Meet David Sedaris.” In 2019 David
Sedaris became a regular contributor to CBS Sunday Morning.
As a companion piece to his New York Times best-selling 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 ain’t the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident”
—Whitney Pastorek, Entertainment Weekly


“Sedaris has hit upon the narrative equivalent of Pepsi, or the PlayStation, or
oxygen, or the haircut: something that others in the world might actually want
and find useful. . . He’s smart, he’s caustic, he’s mordant, and, somehow,he’s . . . well, nice.” —Bill Richardson, Toronto Globe and Mail


“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

“Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.”---San Francisco Chroni
