An Evening with David Sedaris

Here at The Style Eater, I won’t often venture into topics outside the realm of style and eating, but today I will make an exception to tell you about one of my all time favorite authors, David Sedaris. I went to the Irvine Barclay Theater last night to hear Sedaris give a reading and I swear I’ve never heard anyone speak so eloquently and humorously at the same time. Of course, that’s exactly how his writing is but to hear him read aloud in person is something I’ll never forget. My glasses kept fogging up because I was laughing so hard – you may not think the two are related but they are. Sedaris read snippets from his diary as recently dated as October 17th, new “fables” he’d been working on, and a hilarious in-depth about jury duty.
Before the reading, Kyle (my lovely boyfriend) and I waited in line to get one of our books signed. While Sedaris was signing, he drew a picture of an obese cat on the inside cover of my book and predicted that Kyle and I would break up in 2017. Though it was quite a disconcerting comment, it still left me wondering who would keep the signed book (complete with fat cat) if that were to happen…
…just kidding, darling!
