More From David Sedaris
- "I’ve been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it’s just whining, but every so often there’ll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It’s an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. ‘That’s not what you said on February 3, 1996,’ I’ll say to someone."
- "When I look at a lot of older stuff that I’ve written, I think one sign of amateur humor writing is when you see people trying too hard."
- "I tend to show everything I do to my family, to check they won’t be offended."
