NPR is one of the reasons why the creative nonfiction genre is conquering both English departments and the world—it has brought to our attention David Sedaris, Sarah Vowell, Ira Glass, and Kevin Kling. In addition to his commentaries on NPR's All Things Considered, Kling writes books and plays. His second book, Holiday Inn, romps through a full year of holidays with wise irreverence. He will tell tales as a part of the Talk of the Stacks reading series.
