Theft by Finding

by David Sedaris

Quick take

A must-read for any Sedaris fan ... the perfect book to catch your eye and tickle your funny bone.

Why I love it

Master of the humorous essay (and Book of the Month Judge), David Sedaris has built a career based on his witty observations about everyday life, and his diaries contain a treasure trove of raw material that shaped his distinctive writing. _Theft by Finding_ is a 24-year spree of notes, recounted conversations (that ear for dialogue as honed as ever!), Christmas lists, overheard jokes, recipes, and straight up hilarity. A must-read for any Sedaris fan, this is the perfect book to flip through at random, looking for a gem of a sentence or two to catch your eye and tickle your funny bone.
