When You Are Engulfed in Flames


Just finished this book, also by David Sedaris. I loved it; the tone is heavier then the last one I read (Me Talk Pretty One Day) but even so, it’s still very funny. The theme of death is displayed throughout the book but Sedaris’ clever writing skills make it interesting and fun rather than depressing.

This is the book I’m currently in the middle of; Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. A good friend recommended it. She said it wasn’t ‘another book about an autistic child’, but a rather a collection of funny stories, starting out with why he, the author doesn’t talk ‘pretty’. It’s not ‘haha’ funny but it’s clever and a bit twisted. I’m thinking about reading his book, Naked, after this one. Has anyone read it?
