David Sedaris’ autobiographical essays have always read somewhat like fables. That is, short, clever and often containing some sort of lesson, usually at his own expense. Now he’s taking that to its natural end, rejiggering himself as a modern-day fabulist and composing a collection of tales that use animals to explore man’s many foibles. Of course, it’ll probably end up more acerbic than Aesop and more laugh-inducing than LaFontaine. Check out an exclusive clip from Squirrel Meets Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, featuring Sedaris reading some clever rhyming couplets over original illustrations by Ian Falconer, which also feature in the book.
