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).

Review: Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

User Review  - Susan England - Goodreads

I loved it as I do with all David Sedaris's books. He can be thoughtful and introspective in one chapter and downright hilarious in the next chapter. I have a hard time putting down any of his books until I've completed it cover to cover. Read full review

User Review  - Susan Springer - Goodreads

Audiobook: no one reads Sederis quite like Sederis himself. After 15 yrs. in Normandy, David and Hugh buy a house in the English countryside. Hilarious conversations in his father's voice. Classic Sederis. Read full review
