Lets Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris
Sharp, snappy, satirical essays on all aspects of modern life and politics.
David Sedaris has a knack of making any issue come alive, and now that he is an American living in Britain, his caustic wit is turned on many of our own national foibles. Sedaris also includes some wild tales of his childhood, his adventures in colonoscopy and his obsession with litter-picking.
Worth listening out for him on Radio 4 or trying any one of his numerous previous essay collections, all of which are as entertaining and observant as this one.
