"Sedaris is a remarkably skilled storyteller and savvy essayist....And based, on this latest collection, he's getting only better." ---Los Angeles Times

A guy walks into a bar car and...

From here the story could take many turns. When the 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. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each essay into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to grow to love oneself.

With LET'S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS, David Sedaris shows once again why he is widely considered the "the funniest writer in America" (O, the Oprah Magazine).

Relatable stories that I caught myself laughing about out loud. Sometimes a little longer than I feel they need to be

I really enjoyed this collection of essays from David Sedaris. Sharp and funny as ever, but quite touching and tender at times as well. I guffawed and was moved in equal measure.

David Sedaris has a quick wit and a very sharp tongue. Too bad he is so openly anti-Christian and pro-homosexual. This is the last book I plan to read from his authorship. I honestly pray for his conversion to an understanding of the true God and His love for him in his depravity.
