David Sedaris Visual Compendium

In THEFT BY FINDING, David Sedaris opened up his written diaries (and himself) to the world in an unprecedented way. Now, in this illustrated volume, readers will for the first time be able to experience the elaborate, three-dimensional, handmade form that his diaries have always taken. For, in addition to being an unparalleled chronicler of the world around him, Sedaris has always been a keen observer and collector of the art, objects, and ephemera that are part of his visual landscape. A celebration of the odd and unexpected, the beautiful and the ugly, and the humorous and sensitive reflections so familiar to any fan of his writing, DAVID SEDARIS DIARIES (1977-2016): A VISUAL COMPENDIUM offers unique insight into the author's view of the world and stands alone as a striking, collectible volume in itself. Compiled and edited by Sedaris's longtime friend Jeffrey Jenkins, and including interactive components, postcards, and never-before-seen photos and artwork, this is a necessary addition to any Sedaris collection, and will enthrall the author's fans for many years to come.

Saw David Sedaris tonight at Town Hall, where he gave away this pair of pants the guy who introduced him is wearing. Afterward there was a book signing by Sedaris and Akhil Sharma who was his guest this evening. It was a lot of fun and the signing was very friendly and personable.

Won free tickets from our local bookstore @TatteredCoverBookStore to see David live!! No photos during the show but they were great seats! Gotta love that dry sense of humor.

JacqMac His shows are so great! I hope you loved it. 4y
Whimsical.Curiosity @JacqMac it was awesome! His diary entries and jokes crack me up. Someone asked him what makes him laugh and he responded "whenever someone falls down" 4y
Cinfhen He‘s hilarious 4y

lynneamch Love it! My daughter's new washer plays a little tune when it's done. Her kids ran to the window looking for the ice cream truck. 4y
KarenUK @lynneamch Mine does too! It totally freaks my dogs out! 😂 4y
Billypar I think I get the most animosity from my fridge...have definitely slacked in cleaning it and I'm sure it can't help but resent me for it 😹 4y

I love peeking at peoples diaries and I love Sedaris but this book has a weird hushed and reverential tone that would be more fitting for a Cornell or Hopper retrospective. The quote above from the foreword is typical Sedaris wry humor but the rest of the book is dead serious and just seemed at odds with the funky assemblages and snippets of misspelled diary entries. Interesting but not essential
