The series ‘Meet David Sedaris’ on BBC Radio 4 has been hugely popular and this Christmas Eve just past saw him recite a specially recorded version of his famous ‘Santaland Diaries’. This covers a period in his life in which for two consecutive Christmases in the early 1990s, he was a Christmas elf at Santaland in the famous New York department store Macy’s. These are the extracts from his diaries at the time and this story was given a rare outing on Radio 4. The Santaland Diaries drew David’s writing to the attention of America and the World. He hadn’t read them out loud for nearly twenty years
