An Evening with David Sedaris

David Sedaris
Monday, October 24 ~ City Opera House

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor 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. His beloved collections of personal essays, including “Naked,” “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim” and “When You Are Engulfed in Flames,” have sold more than seven million copies worldwide and been translated into 25 languages. Sedaris’ pieces regularly appear in the New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” His newest book, a collection of fables entitled “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary” (with illustrations by Ian Falconer), was published in September 2010 and immediately hit the New York Times Bestseller List. Sedaris will take the City Opera House stage solo to read from his new and up-and-coming works, including a number of stories not yet published. A masterful reader and perennial crowd favorite for his hilarious and captivating storytelling style, Sedaris is a tour-de-force writer and entertainer not to be missed!
