Synopsis

In Theft by Finding, David Sedaris opened up his written diaries (and himself) to the world in an unprecedented way. Now, in this illustrated volume, readers will for the first time be able to experience the elaborate, three-dimensional, handmade form that his diaries have always taken. For, in addition to being an unparalleled chronicler of the world around him, Sedaris has always been a keen observer and collector of the art, objects, and ephemera that are part of his visual landscape.

A celebration of the odd and unexpected, the beautiful and the ugly, and the humorous and sensitive reflections so familiar to any fan of his writing, David Sedaris Diaries (1977-2016): A Visual Compendium offers unique insight into the author's view of the world and stands alone as a striking, collectible volume in itself.

Compiled and edited by Sedaris's longtime friend Jeffrey Jenkins, and including interactive components, postcards, and never-before-seen photos and artwork, this is a necessary addition to any Sedaris collection, and will enthrall the author's fans for many years to come.
