Karen gave me this book for Christmas. It’s a collection of short stories, anchored by the famous tales of Sedaris’ work as a santa’s elf at Macy’s in New York City. I first heard these tales when Sedaris’ was a guest commentator on NPR and I’ve been a fan ever since. The story is a new classic and Sedaris is a very funny fellow.

It’s David Sedaris! This was a Father’s Day gift from The Lovely Karen. She knows I am a Sedaris fan and was kind enough to present this volume to me on Father’s Day. A few of these essays have appeared in The New Yorker, but I find them just as enjoyable on a second reading.
