Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him once more. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine. From armoring the windows with LP covers to protect the house from neurotic songbirds to the awkwardness of having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a sleeping fellow passenger on a plane, David Sedaris uses life's most bizarre moments to reach new heights in understanding love and fear, family and strangers. Culminating in a brilliantly funny account of his venture to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, David Sedaris's sixth essay collection will be avidly anticipated.--From publisher description.… (més)

    Dry: A Memoir de Augusten Burroughs (sweetiegherkin)
    sweetiegherkin: These two nonfiction books deal with giving up a vice (alcohol and, to a lesser extent, drugs for Burroughs; cigarettes for Sedaris) and both do so with dark humor scattered throughout their memoirs. That being said, Sedaris's work is more funny than serious while the opposite is true for Burroughs's. Also, Sedaris's book is largely short stories/vignettes while Burroughs's follows a more traditional narrative. Both men are homosexual and that plays some factor in their books, although it's not the overarching story and/or theme.… (més)

Great Sedaris. About a third of it was about him smoking and then quitting.

Listened to the audiobook of course! ( )

I listened to this as an audio book, which is always best with Sedaris. He narrates, which makes his essays all the funnier. This book was pretty typical of the others I’ve listened to: clever, witty, laugh out loud funny. Highly recommend. ( )

Bráðskemmtilegt smásagnasafn sem Sedaris byggir á húmorískri og kaldhæðinni sýn sinni á eigið líf. Hlustaði á hljóðbók sem Sedaris las sjálfur frábærlega enda var hann verðlaunaður fyrir vikið. Grét af hlátri yfir fyndnustu sögunum enda voru þar hljóðupptökur af fyrirlestrum þar sem hann las viðkomandi sögu fyrir fullum sal af fólki sem veltist um af hlátri t.a.m. þegar hann fyrir misskilning settist inn á biðstofu sjúkrahúss á nærbuxunum einum fata. Aðrar voru tragískari en líka magnaðar þar sem hann fjallaði t.d. um baráttu sína við að hætta að reykja eða vináttu sína við eldri nágrannakonu sem var sannkölluð grýla. ( )

"When You Are Engulfed in Flames" is my first David Sedaris book, and I'm thinking about reading another one right away.

David Sedaris wonderfully narrates his dry wit, and I woke up my daughter laughing early in the morning when I started listening. I laughed through the whole book, well, when I was supposed to.

David has a theory about who buys each brand and type of American cigarette. I don't smoke but know many smokers, and it eerily seems to fit. It's not complimentary, but it was funny. ( )

When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris was my final book for the week. I've been gobbling down his books ever since I read Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls back in the beginning of July! I especially enjoy listening to him narrate his own books. He makes me laugh out loud multiple times and his dry sense of humor leaves me coming back for more. When You are Engulfed in Flames was no different. He makes the mundane every day stories of life hilarious, and he has some pretty interesting encounters along the way as well. From his re-telling of the time he coughed up a lozenge on a sleeping passenger on a plane with whom he just had a fight, to his discussion of taking Japanese courses (and being the worst student), to talking about befriending his neighbors, Sedaris can put a spin on them that just leaves me in stitches! I simply can't wait to get my hands on another book by this witty, clever, fantastic author. ( )
