Sedaris is the author of many titles, including the recent bestseller “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls,” and other collections of essays such as “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” “Barrel Fever” and “Holidays On Ice.” Sedaris’s pieces appear regularly in The New Yorker and have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”

A collection of fables entitled “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary,” with illustrations by Ian Falconer, was published in September 2010 and immediately hit the New York Times bestseller fiction list. His original radio pieces are often heard on “This American Life” on Minnesota Public Radio.

These plays include “Stump the Host,” “Stitches,” “One Woman Shoe” (which received an Obie Award), “Incident at Cobbler’s Knob” and “The Book of Liz,” which was published in book form by Dramatists Play Service.
