History:

David Sedaris first gained public attention in 1992 when National Public Radio broadcast his essay "SantaLand Diaries." He published his first book of essays and short stories, Barrel Fever, in 1994. Five more essay collections followed, which included 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), all of which became New York Times Best Sellers. 2010 saw the release of a collection of short stories called Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary. In 2013, Sedaris published his most recent collection of essays, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls.

His books have sold more than eight million copies. Sedaris showcases his unique brand of humor in his stories and essays, with an autobiographical and self-deprecating style. He often discusses his modest upbringing in Raleigh, North Carolina and Greek heritage, as well as his jobs, drug abuse, quirky behaviors, and his experiences living in France and London.

Born in Binghamton, New York, Sedaris spent his childhood in a suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina. He first became interested in visual and performance art in his teens. After graduating from high school, he briefly attended Western Carolina University and Kent State University before quitting his studies in 1977. Soon after, he moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1983 to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and graduated in 1987.

Sedaris went on to work a string of odd jobs around Raleigh, Chicago, and New York City, before being discovered in a Chicago club by radio host Ira Glass. After hearing Sedaris read one of his diaries aloud, Glass invited him to appear on his local radio show, The Wild Room. Sedaris was a big success on The Wild Room, and the exposure led to his debut on National Public Radio at the end of 1992. On the National Public Radio broadcast, Sedaris read aloud an essay called "SantaLand Diaries," which discussed his experiences working as an elf at Macy's during Christmas in New York City. The success of "SantaLand Diaries" earned Sedaris much praise from The New York Times critics. From there, he signed a two-book contract with Little, Brown and Company. 1994 saw the release of his book Barrel Fever, a collection of both stories and essays. At this time, Sedaris also started writing essays for Esquire and The New Yorker. In 1997, he released a second collection of essays, Naked. The book went on to earn the Randy Shilts Award for Gay Non-Fiction from Publishing Triangle in 1998.
