    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. 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.

    If you could sum up Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls in three words, what would they be?

    witty, intelligent, cranky


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    his story of his father's role in his colonoscopy was hilarious and painful at the same time. I don't know how much of it, or if any of it was true, but that is a very complex relationship.


    Which character – as performed by David Sedaris – was your favorite?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    I am always entertained and enlightened by David S. and this collection did not disappoint

    Story
    (900)

    One Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and 13-year-old son, Joe. In one day, Joe's life is irrevocably transformed. He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Round House the most enjoyable?

    The detail of the lives, surroundings and situations really put you into the story. This is something I believe Louise E. does best.


    What other book might you compare The Round House to and why?

    I have read nearly all of her books and could feel the connection between characters and her other books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one where oops! was sleeping in the room with his grandfather and heard him tell the stories of the past in his sleep.


    If you could take any character from The Round House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The father


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful story and characters and the reader was great to listen to.
