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).
