About the Book
A new collection of essays from the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author who has been called "the preeminent humorist of his generation" ("Entertainment Weekly"). From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, Sedaris shares the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.
From the Publisher
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.
WithLet''s Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows
once again why his work has been called "hilarious, elegant, and
surprisingly moving" (Washington Post).
