Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls – David Sedaris (2013)


Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls is a collection of David Sedaris’ rapier sharp, and darkly funny essays. In typical Sedaris style, he draws heavily on his life with his husband Hugh, and his nuclear family, including 4 sisters, 1 brother, 2 parents and 1 Greek Yaya, growing up. His essays are not funny simply in the fact that they are funny anecdotes, but that in the retelling of them, they bring to bare a certain social more or convention, and allows the reader to analyze it, and consider it, through Sedaris’ microscope. Sedaris’ younger sister, comedian Amy Sedaris, is often included in his stories due to what appears to be a very close friendship between siblings. Sedaris asks suing the course of one essay – who are we as a person, without our families? The 288 pages pass quickly, and will leave the reader quickly looking for further Sedaris writings immediately following the closure of the book.
