Publisher Description

A new collection of essays from the #1 New York Times bestselling author who has been called "the preeminent humorist of his generation" (Entertainment Weekly).

From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.

  • “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
  • “David Sedaris has become a signifier of taste and intelligence…Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls was the kind of book that I finished and just immediately wanted to start reading again.”

    - Esquire
  • “If you are a David Sedaris fan, any new book from the humorist is cause for celebration. His newest offering, Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, is no exception. 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
  • “David Sedaris’s familiar voice and delivery make everything he writes funnier, odder, and more poignant. (And if his voice isn’t familiar, run—don't walk—to find any of his recordings.) 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.”
