Description

A guy walks into a bar car and... From here the story could take many turns. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. With "Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls," David Sedaris shows once again why his work has been called "hilarious, elegant, and surprisingly moving" ("Washington Post").show more

Review quote

"Sedaris makes coming-of-age seem ever new and ever remarkable, not because his life was so very different from any of our own, but because he brings fresh eyes to common experiences.... It's only natural to laugh at all the comic abundance in Let's Explore," but there's no crime in sticking around for the humanity." -David Carr, New York Times Book Review"show more
