We feature a performance by humorist and NPR commentator David Sedaris. He charms us with the complete "Santaland Diaries." This piece first ran on NPR's Morning Edition a few days before Christmas 1992. Even though Sedaris has achieved national fame and movie contracts for his humor writing, he still cleans apartments during the day, because, he says, he can only write at night.
