Yesterday I went to a David Sedaris reading/signing and he was hilarious. If you ever get the chance to see him, GO. He read some stories from his new book (Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk), shared snippets from his diary, and answered several questions. Though I’ve read a few of his books, I haven’t read the new one yet, but really liked what we heard from it. It basically seems to be a collection of short stories from the perspectives of personified animals and insects, but coming from the mind of David Sedaris, they’re super clever and funny.
My friend and I waited in line for the signing, but there were SO many people there that we hardly moved. He had asked people to tell him jokes (he’s been collecting them this book tour!), so I’m guessing that’s part of why it took so long. Oh, and we didn’t manage to stick around the whole time. I have no idea how long he stayed there to sign books, but it had to have been at least until the store closed!
