When You Are Engulfed in Flames

by David Sedaris.

Quickie Recap: Sedaris once again tells us the charming stories that make his life so gosh darned readable: the useless things he learned in Japan, the inappropriate artistic leanings of his parents, and accidentally making friends with pedophiles.

Quickie Review: I secretly think that he's written better (Me Talk Pretty One Day, for example), but I also think that mediocre Sedaris is still a goddamn treat. The man is a genius and there isn't a word he's ever written that I wouldn't wet my panties over.

Quickie Recommendation: Oh yes.

You should read Rebecca's last post; she's first on my blogroll and has a post up right now about Sedaris.
