Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls

David Sedaris, read by the author. Hachette Audio, unabridged, one CD, 6.25 hrs., $29.98 ISBN 978-1-61969-699-0
David Sedaris’s newest essay collection is rife with familiar Sedaris themes: oddities in his travels (a visit to a London taxidermy shop), the ridiculousness of his adult life (an exploration of getting scoped), and his family. Sedaris is, as always, the ideal reader of his own work. He is the master of the deadpan delivery, something that is particularly fitting for his brand of black humor. Of course, Sedaris isn’t all irony. When he wants to get serious, he uses subtle tonal inflections—e.g., when he describes a particularly low, directionless moment in his youth. As good an essayist as Sedaris is, his words are elevated in audiobook form. Even some of the less effective pieces, or the ones that rehash familiar themes, take on new life through Sedaris’s amusing narration. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Apr.)
