The life of David Sedaris took an unexpected, and not entirely unwelcome, turn when his "Santaland Diaries" were first broadcast on NPR's Morning Edition in 1992. Sedaris recounted his experiences playing Crumpet the elf at Macy's in New York during the holidays. Almost overnight, he went from obscurity to sought-after talent. Now, 26 years later, he is a best-selling author who still appears on public radio from time-to-time. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Sedaris is touring in support of his latest best-selling essay collection Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002), and he's coming to the Holland Center for one night only on May 7.
