Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

Celebrated humorist and essayist David Sedaris has a new hardcover short story collection out entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary. In essence, it’s a collection of new Aesop’s fables, but told with Sedaris’ unique wit. Here’s the description from “Featuring David Sedaris’s unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life. In “The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck,” three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In “Hello Kitty,” a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In “The Squirrel and the Chipmunk,” a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members. With original illustrations by Ian Falconer, author of the bestselling Olivia series of children’s books, these stories are David Sedaris at his most observant, poignant, and surprising.” It’s also available as an audio book read by the author and others.
