David SedarisThis week in my B&C blog: My interview with David Sedaris, whose new collection is Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim. (Another portion of this interview will run later this month in Chicago Tribune Magazine; other interviews here and here.) Also: race in South African suburbs, the art of scientific visuals, the importance of Christian creeds, information environmentalism, the history of writer's block, why the Detroit Zoo is releasing its elephants, and more ...
