Acerca de


Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. David Sedaris is an American writer and comedian. In 1994, National Public Radio (NPR) broadcast his autobiographical essay SantaLand Diaries after radio host Ira Glass discovered Sedaris doing a bit in a Chicago club. Sedaris went on to write several bestselling essay collections including Naked, Holidays on Ice and Me Talk Pretty One Day. In 2010, he released his latest collection of stories, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary. Sedaris also frequently contributes to The New Yorker and Esquire. Me Talk Pretty One Day is a collection of autobiographical stories from author David Sedaris. Published in 2000, it quickly became a New York Times Best Seller. Prior to publication, several of the essays were featured on the radio program, This American Life. The stories are loosely chronological and draw heavily on humorous observations of his close family and friends. The collection was critically well-received and, in 2001, Sedaris was awarded the Thurber Prize for American Humor. It is dedicated to his father, Lou, who figures prominently in many of the stories.
