LET'S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS

DAVID SEDARIS    Book Number: 85963    Product format: Paperback

After having lived in Paris for 13 years and now in London, American humourist Sedaris "Renders the pathos, chaos, and impossible variety of daily encounters...brutally honest, hilarious and affectionate about any subject." The Sunday Times said that his "Prose style is so beautifully translucent that you don't even notice that it is a style. Sedaris writes with a gentle but unfailing acuity and a keen eye for the ridiculous, which underlines pretty well everything human beings say and do... Sedaris is like an updated Thurber: domestic, laconic, slightly warped but never bitter, and extremely funny." He has gum disease yet loves to visit his Parisian dentist and hygienist; he ponders while children are no longer punished by their parents for misbehaving and who now let themselves live in a child's house. About his father who always tore off his trousers to eat his supper at 6pm and stayed like that all evening, even if the doorbell rang. And David's first 'girlfriend', a fat black girl from the south side of town, bused into his school. He delights with twists of humour and intelligence and ponders his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant) and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered pygmy. 26 fun essays including 'A Guy Walks Into a Bar Car', 'Understanding Understanding Owls' and 'Rubbish', some of which first appeared in The New Yorker and GQ magazines. 275pp, paperback.
