As he looked at me, David Sedaris said, “Have we met before?”
“I don’t think so,” I said.
“Have you ever been arrested?” he said.
“Did it involve alcohol?” he continued.
Then he drew scissors and signed his name in the book I had just bought. The book, he observed, was a large print edition, which I did not know at the time of purchasing. I was as bewildered by that as he was.
The book signing took place after David Sedaris gave an hour long reading at Royce Hall in UCLA. It was the first time I had seen Sedaris live. He is every bit as good in person. Definitely worth attending.
