Let's explore diabetes with owls

From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences. Whether railing against the habits of litterers in the English countryside or marveling over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop, Sedaris takes us on side-splitting adventures that are not to be forgotten.

  • "Verhalen met subtiele, botte, wrange, zwarte, satirische, sardonische, platte en hilarische humor."
  • "Der ganz normale Wahnsinn Wer behaupten wollte, David Sedaris schreibe und veröffentliche Tagebücher, um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen, müsste Michelangelo einen Anstreicher nennen. Niemand versteht es besser als Sedaris, Erlebtes in Lesbares zu verwandeln - seit seinem Debüt mit "Nackt" lässt er seine weltumspannende Fangemeinde daran teilhaben, wie er die schmerzlichste Erinnerung in subtile Komik und die banalste Begebenheit in zeitlose Weisheit kleidet. Er ist sein eigener Inquisitor und Hofnarr zugleich - 'der herausragende Vertreter des Mein-Leben-als-David-Sedaris-Genres' (BRIGITTE). In seinem neuesten Band mit absurden Alltagsgeschichten entführt uns Sedaris unter anderem in den australischen Busch, wo allerlei Getier verborgene Ängste und längst verdrängte Erfahrungen in ihm aufleben lässt; er erzählt von einer durchzechten Nacht mit wildfremden Alkoholikern im Zug von Chicago nach New York, weiht uns ein in die Geheimnisse der französischen Kieferchirurgie und in die Abgründe des britischen Handwerkertums, verrät uns und seinem präpotenten Patenkind, wie Tagebuchschreiben funktioniert und wozu es gut ist, und lehrt uns, Eulen zu verstehen. Es gibt kaum ein besseres Mittel gegen schlechte Laune als die Komik von David Sedaris - in 26 Geschichten und einem Gedicht macht er voller Scharfsinn aus den kleinen und grossen Dramen des Lebens einen guten Witz. David Sedaris, geboren 1956 in Johnson City, New York, aufgewachsen in Raleigh, North Carolina, lebt abwechselnd in England und den USA. Er schreibt u. a. für 'The New York Times', 'The New Yorker' und 'Esquire'. Mit seinen Büchern 'Naked', 'Fuselfieber', 'Ich ein Tag sprechen hübsch' und 'Schöner wird's nicht' wurde er zum Bestsellerautor. Zuletzt erschien im Blessing Verlag 'Das Leben ist kein Streichelzoo. Fiese Fabeln' (2011)."
  • ""Sedaris is a remarkably skilled storyteller and savvy essayist...And based, on this latest collection, he's getting only better." --Los Angeles Times A guy walks into a bar car and... From here the story could take many turns. When the 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. The common thread' Sedaris masterfully turns each essay into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to grow to love oneself. With LET'S EXPLORE DIABETES WITH OWLS, David Sedaris shows once again why he is widely considered the "the funniest writer in America" (O, the Oprah Magazine)."@en
