David SedarisA Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris


There’s no right way to keep a diary, but if there’s an entertaining way, David Sedaris seems to have mas­tered it. If it’s navel-gazing you’re after, you’ve come to the wrong place; ditto treacly self-examination. Rather, his observations turn outward: a fight between two men on a bus, a fight between two men on the street, pedestrians being whacked over the head or gathering to watch as a man considers leap­ing to his death. There’s a dirty joke shared at a book signing, then a dirtier one told at a dinner party—lots of jokes here and plenty of laughs in true Sedaris style, and, let's face it, we could all use a good laugh.

David Sedaris will sign books in the lobby immediately following his readings and Q & A.
