He is the author of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, a collection of fables with illustra­tions by Ian Falconer. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorkerand have twice been included in “The Best American Essays.”

Sedaris’s original audio pieces can often be heard on the public radio show This American Life. He has been nominated for three Grammy® Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album.

In May 2018, Sedaris released his latest book of essays entitled Calypso.
