A guy walks into a bar ...From here the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris delights with twists of humour and intelligence, remembering 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. By turns hilarious and moving, David Sedaris masterfully looks at life's absurdities as he takes us on adventures that are not to be forgotten.

Publishers Weekly, 2013-05-27 David Sedaris's newest essay collection is rife with familiar Sedaris themes: oddities in his travels (a visit to a London taxidermy shop), the ridiculousness of his adult life (an exploration of getting scoped), and his family. Sedaris is, as always, the ideal reader of his own work. He is the master of the deadpan delivery, something that is particularly fitting for his brand of black humor. Of course, Sedaris isn't all irony. When he wants to get serious, he uses subtle tonal inflections-e.g., when he describes a particularly low, directionless moment in his youth. As good an essayist as Sedaris is, his words are elevated in audiobook form. Even some of the less effective pieces, or the ones that rehash familiar themes, take on new life through Sedaris's amusing narration. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
