Synopsis

David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives -- a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

About the Author

American comedian, David Sedaris, decided to put his good humor and social critiques to pen and has we authored several books and short essays that slice through cultural inadequacies and political correctness. He has been deemed a master of satire and an expert observer of the current human condition. He was born in 1956, and has many titles......humorist, comedian, author, and radio contributor. He gives credit to radio host, Ira Glass, for discovering him in a Chicago club and giving him the invaluable opportunity to appear on his weekly radio program. He said it was life changing.

One of his most important accomplishments would be receiving a Grammy nomination for his audio version of, Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls. There are over ten million copies of his books, and they have been translated into 25 languages.

In collaboration with his sister, Amy Sedaris, David has written six plays that have been produced at such places as LA Mama, Lincoln Center, and The Drama Department in New York City. Three have been nominated for Grammys for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. A recent work is David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure. He has also had a film adaptation of his story C. O.G., which was presented at Sundance Film Festival. The various books about him and by him are numerous. Calypso, a book of essays, was punished in 2018, and a second volume of diaries is expected in summer of 2019.

His older Santaland Diaries was a huge success for listeners, so much so, that the New York Times dubbed him "a minor phenomenon".

I listened to the first 3 or 4 disks, I didn't listen to the 'live' ones, as I found the audience annoying...This was my first David Sedaris experience and I thought he was really funny and touching...some people just lead interesting lives, and see life in a funny way...I am looking forward to his next book that I have in my queue...
