More from David Sedaris

“You need to be in the world and you need to be engaged with the world. It’s my job to collect jokes. It’s my job to collect startling images. And so when I’m out in the world, I’m at work. And I’m a professional.”
“You can’t write unless you read.”
“I started writing when I was twenty, and my first book came out seventeen years later.”
