Listen to David Sedaris Read an Excerpt From Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk


David Sedaris will drop a collection of animal-themed essays tomorrow called Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.

You can hear Sedaris cheerfully reading “The Migrating Warblers,” a story which details two birds’ adventure flying south to Guatemala for the winter, here.

Mixing things up from his usual mix of personal anecdotes, the humorist changes gears with this collection to instead create narratives following the lives of various creatures throughout the animal kingdom. The title references one story’s plot of a squirrel and chipmunk’s inter-species relationship issues.

Ian Falconer provides illustrations for the book.

Pre-order the latest from Sedaris here.
