Review: When You are Engulfed in Flames
When you are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris
Review by: Lauren
Sedaris’ latest book of short stories based on his life is a collection of funny, crazy, and thought-provoking moments. He discusses his friendship with a man accused of sexually assaulting his daughter, going all the way to Japan to try and quit smoking, a lot about his relationship with Hugh, and more.
Reading the stories you have to remind yourself that it all happened; that’s how bizarre some of these are, yet I loved practically every moment of it.
The humorous moments will resonate more with some than others, but I believe there’s a story for everyone inside of this book.
