David Sedaris

Before he was a household name in the world of literature, David Sedaris was a mover, a housecleaner, and an elf. But it was while he was publicly reading selections from his diary about these experiences that This American Life’s Ira Glass discovered him. What Glass heard: passages detailing Sedaris’s time working in Santa’s Village at Macy’s in New York, where he told a misbehaving child that “[Santa] no longer traffics in coal. Instead, if you’re bad, he comes to your house and steals things.”

The Santaland Diaries spring-boarded Sedaris to the forefront of comedic writing. Whether his topic is his childhood in Raleigh, his remarkably odd odd jobs, or his attempts to learn French on the fly in a tiny village, his signature blend of wit and warmth, shrouded in a thin veneer of cattiness, has landed each of his books on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Yet recently his works have ventured into more fictional lands. In 2010’s Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, he penned a series of Aesopian fables for contemporary readers, whereas 2013’s Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls peppered travelogues with short fictions written from less familiar points of view.
