When You Are Engulfed in Flames


Crap. My birthday was on Monday and I wanted a book. I was trying to decide between Devil May Care, the new James Bond novel, or The Dangerous Book for Boys. Both guaranteed delicious, but I had to pick just one and my choice was the bond novel. Unfortunately for the birthday boy, David Sedaris, not only my favorite gay author, but my favorite author overall, just came out with a new book of essays/memoirs called, When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Honestly, I don't need to read a review. I don't need to debate it or make a list of pros and cons; I can just go buy this book. David Sedaris is incredible. I highly recommend reading ANY of his works. Get to it.
