Author David Sedaris, internationally known for his sardonic wit, insightful commentary and wicked satire, will be spending the summer Down Under with a national tour announced today for January 2014, which includes his third appearance at the Opera House as part of Ideas at the House.
Sedaris’s social critique and observations of the human condition have made him one of the world’s most pre-eminent humorists. His latest book release, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list.
Sedaris has sold over 7 million copies of his books Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and has won countless literary awards. Known for his original radio pieces for This American Life (heard in Australia on ABC Radio National), Sedaris is also a regular contributor to the legendary New Yorker magazine. A feature film adaptation of his short story C.O.G. premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year.
