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. InLet'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 as he takes us on adventures that are not to be forgotten.


A dazzling collection (Mail on Sunday)

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 moments 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 Telegraph)

Brilliantly clever, inventive and funny (Guardian)

Treat yourself to this sparkling collection of essays . . . You'll gurgle with laughter or cringe in recognition of uncomfortable truths. Sedaris . . . can identify with almost any absurd situation and wring the last drop of wit from it, but he is also the master of elegantly crafted sentences that simultaneously convey vulnerability, compassion, cruelty and glee . . . polished to perfection (Daily Mail)

Thoughtful, witty, excitable, world-weary, romantic, fastidious . . . creating waves of sympathy and wry humour, as though a rather amazing stranger is addressing you and you alone (Susie Boyt Financial Times)

Biting, intimate anecdotes from America's finest humorist (Daily Telegraph)

Consistently laugh-out-loud funny, Sedaris' pieces are self-obsessed, shocking, wonderfully sustained and closely observed . . . What can happen to anybody becomes darkly hilarious with Sedaris (Independent)
