The top three quotes from David Sedaris’s April 26th book reading at the Smith Center:

3 Recounting a fight in which one man hacked off another man’s forearm: “One man was armed with a cleaver. The other was disarmed.”

2 Discussing a nonfiction book by Gordon Grise called The Book of Deadly Animals: “It makes you feel great about eating meat.”

1 During the Q&A portion of the evening, a woman raised her hand and said she’d gotten married earlier that night. Did David have any advice for keeping a relationship fresh?

“After about 10, 12 years, stop listening to each other. The road to divorce is paved with communication.”
