Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls

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.

´Romantic, shocking and punctuated with the kind of funnies that, if you´re reading while eating, make you snort food through your nose´ Lisa Gee, Independent

´There are lines that go off like firecrackers, storing up their hilarity until the last moment, and there are the one he lobs like little grenades amid the chaos and merriment´ David Shariatmadari, Guardian

´There are sudden moment of honest, revelation and frailty . . . Long may he write and long may the ´Indefinite Leave´ sticker remain in the once stolen and now returned passport of this honorary Briton´ Viv Groskop, Daily Telegraph

Rezension
A dazzling collection Mail on Sunday
Portrait
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today. David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and his most recent book, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. The audio version of Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls was a Grammy nominee for Best Spoken Word Album. He is the author of the New York Times-bestselling collection of fables entitled Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Wicked Bestiary (with illustrations by Ian Falconer). He was also the editor of Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules: An Anthology of Outstanding Stories. Sedaris's pieces appear regularly in the New Yorker and have twice been included in 'The Best American Essays'. There are a total of ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into twenty-nine languages.
