Bestselling author David Sedaris earns $2 million a year.
The author of Me Talk Pretty One Day revealed his approximate annual salary on comedian Michael Ian Black‘s podcast.
The money comes through book tours, speaking gigs, book sales and advances. “So, I feel like I’m on tour, I don’t know, six months out of the year, and then I have royalties,” he said. “I get royalty checks. And then if I have a book, they pay you in installments.”(Via Death & Taxes).
