Theft by Finding: David Sedaris Live

For nearly four decades, David Sedaris has faithfully kept a diary in which he records his thoughts and observations on the odd and funny events he witnesses. Anyone who has attended a live Sedaris event knows that his diary readings are often among the most joyful parts of the evening. But never before have they been available in print. Now, in Theft by Finding, Sedaris brings us his favorite entries, offering a rare look into the mind of one of our generation’s greatest comic geniuses.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in The Best American Essays. There are a total of ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 29 languages.
