Book Review: Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls

Though David Sedaris touches on his childhood in this collection of essays, those anecdotes don't become the focus of this book as they did in the last collection of his I read, "Me Talk Pretty One Day".  This time, he pulls from his early adulthood and - my favorite - sprinkles in some rants spoken in a different, exaggerated, offensive voice, like that of the ignorant Obama protester.

My only critique of Sedaris is that some of his stories digress into another story he is reminded of that makes you forget what the original story was.  But the digression is a fun little trip so it's hard to be too bothered by it.

3 out of 5 stars.
