David Sedaris




Where have you been all my life David Sedaris? I've heard about him for years and was always intrigued, but not enough to seek out his books. I'm usually a fiction gal, so essays weren't really my bag.
Well, I stand corrected. I was reading The New Yorker a few months ago, and happened upon one of his stories from When You are Engulfed in Flames. It spurred me on to buy one of his books, so I chose Naked, maybe for the title? I reserved Flames from the library and consumed it in short order... I'm not sure if his stories are all 100% true, but I don't care. They are so funny and entertaining it just doesn't matter!
