If you listen to a lot of public radio, especially in the United States, you're probably familiar with the name David Sedaris.
He regularly appears in the New Yorker and often is heard on NPR.
His latest book is titled Calypso and was released in May, 2018.
His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.” There are over ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages.
In 2018 he was awarded the Terry Southern Prize for Humor, as well as the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
He and his sister, Amy Sedaris, have collaborated under the name “The Talent Family” and have written half-a-dozen plays which have been produced at La Mama, Lincoln Center, and The Drama Department in New York City.
These plays include Stump the Host, Stitches, One Woman Shoe, which received an Obie Award, Incident at Cobbler’s Knob, and The Book of Liz, which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service.
As such I had already read quite a few of the pieces featured in this book, or at least versions of them, but rediscovered them with joy.
Though they are, in fact, personal essays, I refer to his writing as stories, because essays sound too staid and restrictive a term for writing that is so exuberant and narrative and character-led.
