Theft by Finding

by David Sedaris

Submitted by Kelly K.

Wildly entertaining and utterly mesmerizing, Theft by Finding provides a raw glimpse into the personal life of a comic genius.  The book contains fragments of personal diaries the author has kept for over 40 years and has used as a source for much of his most beloved (and hilarious) essays and non-fiction.  Loved the audio format, even more laugh-out-loud funny as it’s read by the author himself.
