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 with book, Sedaris shows once again why he is widely considered the “the funniest writer in America” (O, The Oprah Magazine).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Once you hear Sedaris’ nasal lilt, you will be unable to read his books without it echoing in your head. Everything sounds funnier when read in his voice, even the slightly morose musings on growing up gay.” Guardian (London)
“David Sedaris’s familiar voice and delivery make everything he writes funnier, odder, and more poignant. Sedaris knows how to make the most of the material, perfectly emphasizing every punch line, gross-out, and auditory double take. A few live recordings, complete with an appreciative audience, are interspersed with the studio readings.” AudioFile
“Hilarious…Winning...Sedaris’ experiences are an endless source of good material.” People
“Artfully milked embarrassing personal incidents for literary laughs…There are plenty of well-cut gems, including one about an ill-fated adoption of some sea turtles that’s both hilarious and touching.” Entertainment Weekly
“The funniest writer in America…Sedaris is thoughtful and sweet in addition to being slyly hilarious.” O, The Oprah Magazine
Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls was the kind of book that I finished and just immediately wanted to start reading again.” Esquire
“It’s quintessential Sedaris…There’s always a laugh-out-loud moment just around the corner.” USA Today
“Sedaris is a remarkably skilled storyteller and savvy essayist. He weaves together vivid images and sensations into a coherent whole that packs a serious emotional punch…Yes, David Sedaris is really that good. And, based on this latest collection, he’s getting only better.” Los Angeles Times
