David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated American humorist and radio contributor.Sedaris came to prominence in 1992 when National Public Radio broadcast his essay "SantaLand Diaries." He published his first collection of essays and short stories, Barrel Fever, in 1994. Each of his four subsequent essay collections, Naked (1997), Holidays on Ice (1997), Me Talk Pretty One Day (2000), Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (2004), and When You Are Engulfed in Flames (2008) have become New York Times Best Sellers.As of 2008, his books have collectively sold seven million copies.

I’m not sure how it is in small families, but in large ones relationships tend to shift over time.

What can I do to make him like me? I used to wonder. The harder I tried to mold myself into the sort of son I thought he wanted, the more contemptuous he became, and so eventually I quit trying and founded the opposition party, which I still lead to this day. Whatever he’s for, I’m against. Almost.

Who does this—goes to the shows of people they’re supposed to be proud of and counts the empty seats?

👍Worth reading

Sedaris is one of a kind. Sharp, hilarious, unapologetically rude.
