Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

A guy walks into a bar car and...From here the story could take many turns. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. Sedaris remembers 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. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why his work has been called "hilarious, elegant, and surprisingly moving" (Washington Post)....

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls Reviews

    Most of the essays in this book are funny, but I kept getting major deja vu from earlier David Sedaris hits. I feel bad for Sedaris because I get the impression his successes have kind of painted him into a corner, and when he tries to do something new people are like "bleh, we liked your old stuff better" and when he settles into his familiar territory of wry essays about the various weirdnesses (I don't think that's a real word, BUT IT SHOULD BE) of his life people are like, "SEEN IT!!!" I'm s ...more

    نمی دونم چه صیغه ایه که همیشه صبر می کنم تا پیمان خاکسار یکی از کتاب های سداریس رو ترجمه کنه ککه بعدش من بدو بدو برم انگلیسیش رو بخونم

    :))

    به هر حال اینم خوب بود. طبق عادت همیشگی نویسنده مجموعه ای داستان کوتاه بود با محتوای یادآوری خاطرات خود نویسنده از اتفاقات ریز و درشت زندگیش که چاشنی طنز هم بهش اضافه شده . بد نیست وقتی غمگین هستین یا بی حوصله این یا دلتون خنده می خواد یا حوصله کتاب های سنگین رو ندارین یا مثلا موتور کتاب خوانی تون خاموش شده و می خواین با یه محرکی روشنش کنین به این کتاب رو بیار

    I feel like I'm now on some sort of NPR blacklist for not liking David Sedaris. Like, I'll call in to the next fund drive and they'll say "I'm sorry but our records show you gave ...Diabetes with Owls two stars. We don't want your money." Two stars, because he's a competent writer, especially when he's not writing as himself, and he made me chuckle a few times but, wow, I haven't felt this alienated by a book in a while. Maybe it was because I listened to the audiobook and hearing the howls of l ...more

    Yay! David Sedaris is even older than I am. (Every year it gets harder and harder to find someone who is...) BUT, he IS close enough in age that we are basically contemporaries, therefore, his gripes are my gripes, and this makes me happy.

    Like Sedaris, I can clearly remember mundane incidents that occurred in third grade - the day THAT BASTARD, Marty W., pushed me down in the playground and tore my favorite pants (true, they were plaid, so maybe he did it as a favor), but, no, I cannot remember

    I love David Sedaris but I HATED his last book, 'Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk'. I'm hoping he redeems himself here.

    UPDATE: I read this book and I was happy to find short stories and essays. I laughed out loud many times. The story about the taxidermist is my favorite out of this collection.

    It is no happy work to break the hearts of tens, but I can do nothing less than my duty. So here it is: David Sedaris is not funny. He is not clever, observant, witty, pithy, or trenchant. He is not deadpan or droll.

    What he is, is not funny.

    I do not argue that he has never been funny or that he may never be funny in some theoretical future. I argue that he is specifically, painfully not funny in Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls, his latest book of “essays, etc.” (and it’s that “etc.” that should

    فقط دو جا از آدم، دزدي ميكنند؛ در تلويزيون و در دنياي واقعي.

    در تلويزيون اموال آدم پيدا ميشود ولي در دنياي واقعي، تازه اگر خوش شانس باشيد، پليسي كه به خانه تان ميايد ميپرسد: كامپيوتر دزديده شده چه جور كامپيوتري بوده؟

    اجازه ندهيد اين سوال، سطح توقعتان را ببرد بالا. به احتمال قوي اين را پرسيده چون يك سوال نرم افزاري دارد.

    ميشه گفت اين كتاب يه مجموعه از يادداشتهاي شخصي سداريسه. درمورد سفرهاش. خاطراتش از چيزهاي مختلف. با همون رگه هاي طنز كه تو همه جملاتش خيلي واضح وجود داره.

    با سداريس نميشه نخنديد.
