From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.Hide synopsis

Title: Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls Rare Fine Copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing: Signed With Original Drawing By David Sedaris Author:David Sedaris ISBN-13:9780316154697 ISBN:0316154695
Description:Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 280...Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 280 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. The author's eighth collection of personal essays. One of David Sedaris' finest collections. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a regular first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents more of David Sedaris' inimitable essays. Lazily labeled as "humor" writing, which is not inaccurate, it is not completely accurate either because Sedaris "weaves together vivid images and sensations into a coherent whole that packs a serious emotional punch" (The Los Angeles Times). Of course, he's also very funny: "Quintessential Sedaris. There's always a laugh-out-loud moment just around the corner" (USA Today). An absolute "must-have" title for David Sedaris collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by David Sedaris. He also drew a beautiful owl above his signature, making this signed copy very special indeed. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement of the event during which the signature was obtained. Sedaris is a genuine rarity among superstar-writers: He spends time with every single person who has taken the trouble of going to his reading and waiting patiently in line to get his or her book signed. He writes lengthy, personalized inscriptions to those who want them and has been known to sign into the wee hours of the morning. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two signed and drawn ("doodled") copies of the First Hardcover Edition/Firs t Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the finest living American writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID SEDARIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0316154695.
