Let's Explore Diabetes With OwlsLarge Print - 2013
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 ).

QuotesAdd a Quote
As a child I assumed that when I reached adulthood, I would have grown-up thoughts. By this I meant that I would stop living in a fantasy world; that while standing in line for a hamburger or my shot at the ATM, I would not daydream about befriending a gorilla or inventing a pill that would make hair waterproof.
"Exposing yourself to a girl is one thing. Doing it to a boy, though-the guy would have to be perverted."
SummaryAdd a Summary
A collection of essays as well as a few fictional letters and a poem - a mashup of writings. The essays are about Sedaris's childhood, and life traveling as a writer and living now in England. Funny, touching, and smart.
