With David Sedaris, the results are always the same. He will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved.

With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why the Washington Post has called his work "hilarious, elegant, and surprisingly moving."

In this collection of essays, playwright and NPR commentator Sedaris tops his anarchically hilarious miscellany Barrel Fever (1994) by inventing a new genre: autobiography as fun-house mirror…[With Naked} Sedaris applies the same deadpan fastidiousness to his life that Charlie Chaplin applied to his shoe in The Gold Rush--this is splendid stuff. -- Kirkus Reviews

In Me Talk Pretty One Day Sedaris is as determined as ever to be nobody's hero--he never triumphs, he never conquers--and somehow, with each failure, he inadvertently becomes everybody's favorite underdog. The world's most eloquent malcontent, Sedaris has turned self-deprecation into a celebrated art form… -- Amazon Review

Older, wiser, smarter and meaner, Sedaris...defies the odds once again [with When You Are Engulfed in Flames] by delivering an intelligent take on the banalities of an absurd life. -- Kirkus Reviews
