good ol' David Sedaris
The first time I read Santa Land Diaries I had to take a walk because I was laughing so hard and I needed time to process Sedaris's sick humor and whacky perspective on the world. Yesterday, I saw a staged version of this story at Syracuse Stage and I guess, in a way, it welcomed the Christmas season with a chuckle. David Sedaris is a master of dry wit and sarcasm and his words work theatrically and leisurely. If you've never read this piece, I highly recommend it. It will make you happy, even if it is in perverse way.
