With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris' latest book, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, was released on September 28, 2010 and has already received rave reviews:

"...it takes anthropomorphism to the extreme." -- Aileen Gallagher, NY Magazine

"It's a collection of acerbic, funny fables, featuring animals with failings." -- James Reaney, London Free Press

"...this book, like his more familiar essays, is way outside the world of boxes, wildly inspired -- and a rip-roaring hoot." -- Heller McAlpin, NPR

"It's a roller-coaster that can be hard to take for the sensitive among us, but by the end of the ride, you want to do it all over again." -- Edie Adelstein, Colorado Springs Independent

David Sedaris is also the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, all bestsellers. There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. Sedaris' pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in "The Best American Essays." David Sedaris' original radio pieces can often be heard on This American Life, distributed nationally by Public Radio International and produced by WBEZ. David Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album.

"Sedaris ain't the preeminent humorist of his generation by accident" -- Whitney Pastorek, Entertainment Weekly

"Sedaris's droll assessment of the mundane and the eccentrics who inhabit the world's crevices make him one of the greatest humorists writing today." -- Chicago Tribune

"Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what's funny." -- San Francisco Chronicle
