Holidays on Ice

US satirist David Sedaris has been my favourite author for some time now. I went to see one of his plays 'The Santaland Diaries' in Melbourne a few years back . The play enacts 30 year old Sedaris' financial desperation, which ultimately leads him to accept work as a Christmas elf at Macy's in NYC. The book this play is taken from is called 'holidays on ice'. It's a seasonal collection of hilarious stories that showcase Sedaris' acerbic but very funny & warped sense of humour.
