David Sedaris Audio

David Sedaris is a popular humor writer who first gained attention on the Chicago public radio show "The Wild Room", hosted by Ira Glass. Glass discovered Sedaris reading his diaries in a Chicago club and invited him to appear on the show. His popularity there led to his debut in 1992 on the NPR show "Morning Edition," where he read his essay "SantaLand Diaries." It recounts his misadventures while working as one of Santa's elves in a Macy's department store.

Following the success of these radio appearances, Sedaris published his first book, Barrel Fever and Other Stories in 1994. He followed this with Naked in 1997 and Me Talk Pretty One Day in 2000. The later book garnered Sedaris rave reviews and the 2001 Thurber Prize for American Humor.

Sedaris continues to write essays, sketches, plays and sometimes collaborates with his sister, actress Amy Sedaris. Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary was a collection of animal fables released in 2010.

Barrel Fever and Other Stories is Sedaris' first collection and contains fictional stories and non-fiction essays. This audio download looks at infanticide, chain smoking, alcoholism and other cheery subjects.

Sedaris won critical acclaim with Me Talk Pretty One Day, essays about his family and his move to France. This audiobook is both touching and hilarious. Sedaris discusses the odd relationship he has with his father, his mother's death, and the proper etiquette to follow when the toilet overflows as a guest in another person's home.

The Holidays on Ice audiobook shows the reader how Sedaris spends his holidays. He recounts Easter in France, an essay contrasting American and Dutch holiday traditions, and a reprint of the essay that made him famous, "SantaLand Diaries".
