Each week leading up to the publication of David Sedaris’s Theft By Finding, a collection of the writer’s humorous diary entries from 1977 to 2002, EW is revealing one exclusive clip from the audiobook — which, of course, Sedaris reads himself.
Today’s clip features diary entires from October 1998: In one, Sedaris’s longtime partner Hugh cuts off the tip of his finger and Sedaris frantically realizes he doesn’t know how to say “band-aid” in French. In the other, Sedaris’s sister Amy tries to convince him to buy a miniature potbelly pig, and can’t fathom why he isn’t interested.
Listen to the clip below. Theft By Finding is available in print and audio formats on May 30.[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/321925259?secret_token=s-P9zJi" params="visual=true&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]
