  • Sedaris' first book in four years mines his past for more than just laughs.

There's an addictive quality to David Sedaris' work as a humorist and essayist. And while addictions are personal things, nearly everyone I've introduced to the man's live performances has walked away wanting to see him again. I know — it happened to me. Nearly every time, part of the show was dedicated to his diaries and works-in-progress, offering new, unpublished stories. Now those diaries have been culled and collected into his latest book, Theft by Finding: Diaries 1977-2002, and he's coming to Spokane for a reading and signing. By the time you read this, the limited spots will likely be gone, but Auntie's will reopen its doors after his reading to welcome fans who would still like a glimpse, and maybe an autograph.
