The Sedaris Factor

After selecting it as one of his favorite books of 2009 (The New Yorker, The Book Bench, Dec. 11, 2009), David Sedaris chose Irish Girl as the book to recommend to his audiences on his 34-city, 2010 U.S. Book Tour. 

Here's a youTube clip of him doing just that, plus reading from the book.

Here's a nice report on same in Seattle's The Stranger. 

I met Searis in Asheville, NC, in the midst of my Great Sedaris Shadow (Stalker) Tour.  Here's something I wrote about that for  

And here's an NPR interview I did on same for a program called The Story.
