American humorist and bestselling author David Sedaris will be in Berlin this evening as part of his lecture tour. We reached him on the phone in London to find out more about what to expect, and to pick his brain on a wide variety of topics including Angela Merkel’s style, his writing routine, and why he avoids social media.

David Sedaris brings his lecture tour to the Babylon theater at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz tonight.
