Sedaris Supports Other Authors

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports on the creative support given by David Sedaris to two of his favorite authors at a recent reading at Carmichael's Bookstore in Louisville, Kentucky. Sedaris, author most recently of When You Are Engulfed in Flames, offered front-of the-line book-signing privileges to customers who purchased "the store's five total copies of two of Sedaris' favorite books, Lazarus Project by Bosnian-born writer Aleksandar Hemon and No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July." Since Sedaris signed "signing hundreds of books" that night, getting priority in the line turned out to be a pretty good perk.

Sedaris is awesome! I have seen him read live once, and it was one of the most memorable experiences I can think of. I really like that he is helping fellow authors in this way, it shows a lot of class.
