David Sedaris Tour Comes To Kauai - Hawaii

Published on November 27, 2018 by Rae-Marie May

Fans of David Sedaris will be happy to learn that he is coming to Kauai! David Sedaris, a humorist, comedian, author and radio contributor, will be reading and signing at the Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center in Lihue on January 27, 2019.

Much of David Sedaris's humor is autobiographical and self-deprecating and often concerns his family life, his middle-class upbringing in the suburbs of Raleigh, North Carolina, his Greek heritage, homosexuality, jobs, education, drug use, obsessive behaviors, and his life in France, London, and the English South Downs. His latest book, Calypso, is possibly his most deeply personal and darkly hilarious book.

David Sedaris Tour - Kauai - Hawaii

From David Sedaris Books:

"If you’ve ever laughed your way through David Sedaris’s cheerfully misanthropic stories, you might think you know what you’re getting with Calypso. You’d be wrong.

When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it’s impossible to take a vacation from yourself.

With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny–it’s a book that can make you laugh ’til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris’s powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.

This is beach reading for people who detest beaches, required reading for those who loathe small talk and love a good tumor joke. Calypso is simultaneously Sedaris’s darkest and warmest book yet–and it just might be his very best."

From Wikipedia: David Sedaris was discovered in a Chicago club by radio host Ira Glass; Sedaris was reading a diary he had kept since 1977. Glass asked him to appear on his weekly local program, The Wild Room. Sedaris' success on The Wild Room led to his National Public Radio debut on December 23, 1992, when he read a radio essay on Morning Edition titled "Santaland Diaries," which described his purported experiences as an elf at Macy's department store during Christmas in New York.

"Santaland Diaries" was a success with listeners, and made Sedaris what The New York Times called "a minor phenomenon." He began recording a monthly segment for NPR based on his diary entries, edited and produced by Glass, and signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown and Company.

As of today, David Sedaris has written countless stories, articles, essays and audio recordings. He has also authored several plays, some with his actress sister, Amy SedarisSedaris currently lives in Horsham, West Sussex, England, with his boyfriend Hugh Hamrick. He enjoys collecting litter, especially in the wee hours of the night. In his local area, where he is known as "Pig Pen," there is a garbage truck named after him.

Meet The Author
My husband and I fell in love with Hawaii in the early eighties when we made our first trip from San Diego to the islands. In 2000 we chose Kauai as our home. We love the small town feel, great weather and beauty. We couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
