Summary, etc. note: "After saying for years that he would never publish his most intimate writings, his diaries, David Sedaris released the first volume, Theft By Finding, captivating readers by offering a rare window into the author's early years as a struggling artist. Now, A Carnival of Snackery tells the rest of the story, picking up as Sedaris is discovered, moves to France, and decides to give this full-time writing thing a go. Here we read the story behind the stories that have become modern classics, as Sedaris takes French classes, helps his boyfriend Hugh renovate a dilapidated Normandy farmhouse, connects with his family, and starts to go on the road reading his work out loud to increasingly adoring fans. Throughout these entries, his keen, candid, and moving observations about the world keep him grounded as he sets out on the uneven terrain of stardom. A must-read for every Sedaris fan, and for every artist seeking to translate their unique vision to a sometimes uncomprehending world, A Carnival of Snackery is a reminder of the joy, connection, and inspiration that can be found in the everyday, particularly if you have David Sedaris as your guide"--
