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.
You may have heard him on the hugely popular BBC Radio 4 series ‘Meet David Sedaris’ or you might be one of the millions worldwide who have read one of his many books.His next book will be a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding (summer 2017). Now, after three sell-out runs in London, two sell-out Edinburgh Fringe Festival stints and a sell-out UK 2014 tour; David Sedaris will once again set out across the UK.
