Thank You David Sedaris

by D - Tuesday, Nov 23, 2010 at 3:23pm

David Sedaris brought his wit and self-deprecating humour to McNally Robinson last night, wowing a jam-packed crowd of loyal followers. Reading the first chapter of his new book squirrel seeks chipmunk, Sedaris immediately connected with everyone in the audience remembering those awkward first date moments when the conversation lulls or comes to a complete stop. The story of the flies, complete with vomit and feces and guaranteed to be unlike anything you will ever hear again, was read with Sedaris' typical sardonic approach. Assuring the audience that his editors said the story was far too disgusting to include in the book it's only available on the audio version of squirrel seeks chipmunk. Following up with readings from his diaries on tour and questions from the audience, David Sedaris wholeheartedly recommended readers get a copy of another book, Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned by Wells Tower. A signing followed the event where Sedaris personally encouraged everyone to share their jokes with him, the theme of this particular book tour.
