On September 25 2011, NPR humorist, best-selling author and one of ABC’s most favorite people ever, the inimitable David Sedaris will be appearing at The Royal Theatre Carré in Amsterdam for a special evening of readings from his work.
This is the first time a foreign author has appeared at Carré, but with Dutch fans including Paul de Leeuw, Paulien Cornelisse, Sylvia Witteman, Francine Oomen, Candy Dulfer, Marc-Marie Huijbrechts and Johannes van Dam, tickets are expected to sell out.
However, thanks to the kind people of Carré, ABC has three pairs of tickets to give away! To enter the draw, just send an e-mail with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org before 11am on Wednesday 21 September 2011.
About David Sedaris
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.
David Sedaris is the author Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and When You Are Engulfed in Flames, each of which became a bestseller. There are a total of seven million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. His latest book, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, is collection of delightful, sharply-observed animal-themed tales told with Sedaris’s trademark blend of hilarity and goodnaturedness. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.
