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
