Staff Reviews

I’m a HUGE fan of David Sedaris and his newest collection didn’t disappoint. While this one had a little bit more of a “grown-up” tone to it (vs. Me Talk Pretty One Day), his sense of humor and observation is just as sharp as ever. Pace yourself, though – it flies by and you don’t definitely don’t want to miss a single joke or subtle punchline!

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.

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).
