SQUIRREL SEEKS CHIPMUNK

Just when I thought it was safe to read on a plane without disturbing the cabin, David Sedaris is back with another collection of short stories - Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.   Sedaris is known the world over for his stories that poke fun at outrageous family members and neighbors,  who are all too often familiar to readers.    Books like- Me Talk Pretty One Day, Holidays On Ice, & Naked have been translated into twenty six languages, proving that millions of people relate to the off beat and unflattering references cooked up by the mind of Sedaris.  These stories actually make me that guy that laughs out loud while reading on a plane. (I normally hate that guy!).

This time around the stories are told through various members of the animal kingdom, in the form of demented fables that are classic David Sedaris.   If possible, using animals as characters has made the racist, bigoted, & plain unsociable behavior that is so fun to cringe at, even more deplorable - in the most hilarious manner.  In addition, the book is so perfectly illustrated by Ian Falconer of Olivia the Piglet fame.   The animal illustrations give the book a strange bedside table quality.   This makes the stories read like little gems to savour one at a time, night after night.

Sedaris is a regular guest on NPR Radio and hearing him read his own stories is not to be missed.   With the release of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, Sedaris has also set out on an exhausting book tour throughout North America.   To meet David Sedaris and have your copy of his latest autographed, visit DAVID SEDARIS BOOKS to find a signing near you.

David Sedaris strikes again

 

The latest offering from the master of sarcasm and wise-assed social commentary is smoldering on the shelves of your local bookstore. David Sedaris needs no introduction to anyone who has been paying attention to the media and book reviews of the last 10 years. His essays read on

NPR broadcast have a cult following. The quirky and awkward portrayals that David dreams up (we hope they are fictional!!) are laugh out loud funny. Its the stories about family and social encounters that will have you in stitches. I'm about as jaded a NY'er as you will find - and I have found myself actually laughing out loud while reading on a plane. If you know his work - it is a must read and you probably already tore through it. If you don't know his work, pick it up. Sedaris is one of those authors whose stories you don't want to end, so normally I read a chapter every few nights to make it last lounger. Let the laughing begin!
