With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's preeminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition. "Sedaris's droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today," declares the Chicago Tribune. "Sedaris ain't the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident," adds Entertainment Weekly. "He's smart, he's caustic, he's mordant, and, somehow, he's... well, nice," asserts the Toronto Globe and Mail. "Sedaris has hit upon the narrative equivalent of Pepsi, or the PlayStation, or oxygen, or the haircut: something that others in the world might actually want and find useful."
