The Best of Me

The Best of Me

A lavish gift edition of David Sedaris’s best stories, spanning his spectacular bestselling career. Hand-picked by David himself, these are stories that will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, from “the funniest man alive” (Time Out New York).

What could be a more tempting holiday gift than a compendium of David Sedaris’s best stories, selected by the author himself? From a spectacular career spanning almost three decades, these stories have become modern classics and are now for the first time collected in one volume.

The collection will also feature an introduction by the author; a never-before-collected story, “Unbuttoned”; and a new interview with David Sedaris.
