David Sedaris lives in Paris. Raised in North Carolina, he has worked as a housecleaner and most famously, as a part-time elf for Macy's. He is a regular contributor to Esquire and Public Radio International, and his essays have been featured in The New Yorker and Harper's.
These are scenes of family life at its best, written with clarity but also with great affection, through which the character of the author emerges, watchful, self-mocking and full of understanding. TLS This is a man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake. OBSERVER 'Mr Sedaris's humour is dry, witty and consistently successful.' ECONOMIST 'Sedaris is like an updated Thurber: domestic, laconic, slightly warped but never bitter, and extremely funny.' CULTURE, SUNDAY TIMES 'His best, funniest, most satisfying book.'
