Reading a David Sedaris book in public can cause socially uncomfortable situations. Stifling your giggles results in awkward, shaking movements that will cause people to stare. Let loose, and your guffawing will cause people to stare and fear you. See Sedaris read his work on stage, however, and you’ll avoid both. Laugh out loud as the best-selling author recounts hilarious stories of his wacky upbringing that retain their wit long after your unashamed laughter subsides.
