Paperback EditionPicking up where Theft by Finding left us, A Carnival of Snackeries brings David Sedaris's wickedly funny, sometimes bizarre and often poignant diaries up to 2019.
For forty years, David Sedaris has kept a diary in which he records everything that captures his attention-overheard comments, salacious gossip, soap opera plot twists, secrets confided by total strangers. These observations are the source code for his finest work, and through them he has honed his cunning, surprising sentences.
Praise for Theft By Finding:
The writing here is funnier, (even) sharper . . . There isn't a dull word among these pages (India Knight Sunday Times)
Could there be a more delightful American import than the memoirist David Sedaris? Not since the peanut butter and jelly sandwich have we inherited something so sweet and comforting yet so wickedly naughty (The Times).
