David Sedaris may have had no shot at being accepted to Yale as a student.
But now, with decades of literary success under his belt, his writings at least are making it into those hallowed halls.
Sedaris has sold a collection of his manuscripts, drafts, notebooks, and other items to Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, according to the New York Times.
He’ll be figuratively bumping elbows with Garry Trudeau, Mark Twain, and other satirists in the collection.
Some of Sedaris’s items will be on display at the library for a few more weeks, but for those of us who can’t make it, the Times offers a glimpse into the memorabilia with commentary by the author here.
