“I started writing when I was twenty. My first book came out when I was thirty-five. But I never expected that it would happen quickly.”

More from David Sedaris

“I'm glad that I didn't have the Internet when I started writing. I started writing when I was 20 and didn't show a word of it to anyone until I was 28. I had the sense to keep it to myself. Now the temptation with blogs and such, they're just getting it out there; maybe it would have been best to keep it to themselves.”
“Write relentlessly, until you find your voice. Then, use it.”
“Writing gives you the illusion that you're in control. But it's just that: an illusion.”
