David Sedaris and Ian Falconer Introduce “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk”

David Sedaris’ new collection of comic stories, Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, was recently released with an accompanying video that features the voice of Sedaris and the artwork of Ian Falconer.

If you’re not familiar with him, Falconer has drawn over 30 covers for The New Yorker (see example here), while also creating the amazing Olivia the Pig series for children. (Be sure to watch this Olivia Goes to Venice clip for a quick primer.) If this video whets your appetite, then let me direct your attention to Sedaris reading the actual story “The Squirrel and the Chipmunk.” It originally aired on This American Life.

Or, as regular readers know, you can snag a free audio copy of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk – Sedaris does some of the narration! – if you register for a 14-day free trial of Audible.com. Once the trial is over, you can continue your Audible subscription (as I did), or cancel it, and still keep the free book. The choice is entirely yours.
