Even if you've read all of David Sedaris' best-selling books, heard every segment he's performed on This American Life, and caught all of his appearances on The Late Show and The Tonight Show, prepare to be delightfully surprised when he arrives at San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. It's an evening of all new readings, a Q&A session and book signing of his latest: a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding Diaries (1977-2002). Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. He has sold more than seven million books, which include such comedic classics as Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim.
