Book Review: A Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris


Mr. Sedaris’ diary entries are a treasure and we are blessed that he allows us into his world this way.

I was initially intimidated by the amount of pages, but this turned out to be a very fast read for me. He doesn’t share each day’s diary entry, but crafts an over-arching narrative that draws you into his life. From his love of wild animals around his house (RIP Carol) to what it was like to be in New York City when Trump was defeated and Biden won the 2020 election, these stories lay bare the author’s thoughts and feelings – and it’s a magical ride.
