A new essay collection from David Sedaris, which exemplifies his unique ability to combine dark humor and poignance. Follow David's adventures pre- and during the pandemic as he travels and deals with his father's death. This is Sedaris' first work of original essays since Calypso in 2018.

"David Sedaris is back, doing the thing his readers have come to adore: offering up wry, moving, punchy stories about his oddball family. This batch also touches on some of the more tumultuous moments of our past two years, sometimes pretty irreverently. These essays also have more darkness and death than his earlier work, building off themes he began exploring in his previous collection, Calypso." - Gal Beckerman, The Atlantic

"In Happy-Go-Lucky, David Sedaris reflects on his fraught relationship with his dad… It's always interesting to see how a writer's work changes after their parents are gone. Some loosen up dramatically. For many, the gloves come off, relieved to finally have the last word… fresh, funny." -NPR

"David Sedaris is the standard against which all other humor essayists are judged" -Vulture
