Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris

In Sedaris' latest collection of essays, he includes stories about his childhood, his adult life, and some that are fiction.  I really enjoyed "Memory Laps" about his childhood recollections of when he learned to swim, "Just a Quick E-mail" a story of fiction about a woman thanking a friend for a wedding gift, and "The Happy Place" about David's father pressuring him to get a colonoscopy.  I also thought that the collection was a much better read than the last few I have read by him.  In other recent Sedaris books I've read, I've felt that the stories about his childhood were superior to those about his adult life or the fiction ones. In this collection, though, I really enjoyed all three.
