i am a huge david sedaris fan. he is a favorite author and person to go listen to talk. i have seen him twice, once with my bestie Carrie in berkeley, and once with my hunni at the tulsa's PAC. he never disappoints. one of my favorite books is the ever popular holidays on ice. it has wonderfully humorous stories centered around the Christmas holidays. you might have heard mr.sedaris read his story santaland diaries. if you haven't heard this, click on the link and listen, be prepared to laugh out loud. any one of his books would be a fantastic present. i have recieved and given david sedaris myself and if there is someone on your Christmas list that enjoys humor, sedaris is the king.
