David Sedaris recommends "No One Belongs Here..."

Today at a book signing, author David Sedaris recommended everyone pick up Miranda July's book.
He added that she has a voice like no one else he's ever read.

I was pretty excited when he said this.

Ooh, that's really awesome! I just bought his new book yesterday.

How was the signing?

it was a lot of fun!
There was about 2 hours of waiting outside the bookstore, and in the Austin summer.... well that was really just miserable from the heat.
But once inside, it was lots of fun. He made up some story while signing my book about a turtle walking 8,000 miles to watch Jesus, and how turtles are so noble since they just walk all the time.

He also read from his diary for awhile during the event. He is such a fantastic writer, and I was so pleased to find out he appreciates Miranda July

Very cool. I live in Portland, and I know he's going to be here for Halloween, but you have to purchase tickets, so I'm not sure I'll be able to go.

I think I first heard David Sedaris on This American Life, and the more I think about it, the more I think it would awesome if one of Miranda July's stories was featured on the program. They have just the right amount of whimsy.

She's been broadcast on NPR a ton of times. I'm not sure whether it was on This American Life or not.
