A Carnival of Snackery: Diaries 2003-2020 by David Sedaris

Starting where Theft by Finding left off, the sultan of subtle humor, David Sedaris, presents the last 15 years of his personal diaries. Walking the line between silly and serious, Sedaris’s series of short, memorable pieces focus on the important things in life, like secret planets, thieving monkeys, and voyeuristic spiders. Reading the punchy entries not only gives insight into Sedaris’s mind; it also shows aspiring writers of creative nonfiction the discipline it takes to become an icon. —Aric

Please Don't Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes by Phoebe Robinson

Stand-up comedian, author, creator of her own book imprint, and cohost of the podcast 2 Dope Queens, Phoebe Robinson is building a “mini empire” and is deservedly proud of it. Despite her many accomplishments, she somehow found time to write this latest collection of essays. Robinson’s writing is intimate, and reading Please Don’t Sit On My Bed in Your Outside Clothes felt like catching up with a good friend over drinks. While she discusses many topics that are light and fun, she also takes the time to delve deeper, particularly when discussing her thoughts and experiences of being a Black woman in America. This book is the perfect blend of entertaining, educational, and funny. —Jade

Where the Deer and the Antelope Play by Nick Offerman

So, George Saunders, Jeff Tweedy, and Nick Offerman go hiking in the woods… I feel like there’s a punchline coming, or perhaps just the beginning to the best book ever on life in the great outdoors. His adventures in Glacier National Park with these two besties are worth the price of entry alone, but followed by a visit with British shepherd James Rebanks and an RV road trip with wife, Megan Mullally, and I’m giggling Ron Swanson-style over here. There’s so much more to say about Offerman’s humor, observations, and curiosity, but really, need I? —Melinda
