Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls: Essays, Etc. by David Sedaris

I love exchanging favorite book titles with friends who read. Mia listed David Sedaris as one of her favorite writers, so I checked out his latest book. It's a series of short essays about...well, everything. For example, one essay is about getting a colonoscopy. Another is about the pet turtles he kept as a boy. My favorite essay in this book was titled "#2 to Go" all about China, phlegm, and Chinese food which was disgusting and spot-on.

Overall, I thought this book was hilarious, crass, thoughtful, and sometimes touching. But not recommended if you're easily offended!
