He is the author of "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary," a collection of fables with illustrations by Ian Falconer. Each of these books was an immediate bestseller. He was also the editor of "Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories." His pieces regularly appear in The New Yorker and have twice been included in "The Best American Essays." There are over ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. In 2018 he was awarded the Terry Southern Prize for Humor, as well as the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. As a companion piece to his New York Times best-selling book "Theft By Finding: Diaries (1977-2002)," Jeffrey Jenkins published and edited an art book of Sedaris's diary covers, titled "David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium."
