Author and humorist David Sedaris will be visiting nine states in two weeks, promoting his new book: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: a Modest Bestiary. The book is a collection of animal-themed tales where the non-human characters find themselves in situations mirroring human life. The book is illustrated by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children’s books.
Amazon describes Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk as “Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.”
