On its way

David Sedaris' new book, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, is out and through the beauty of Amazon's speedy international delivery service, it shall soon be mine. I cannot count the ways I heart Mr. Sedaris, but I can rank my favorite books:
1. Naked
2. Barrel Fever
3. Me Talk Pretty One Day
And for me, being a lifer in the retail game, his absolute best story ever is "SantaLand Diaries."

Can't wait to read Flames. And as funny as SantaLand is in print, it is very funny as a stage show. If you've never seen it, look for it at a small regional theater near you around the holidays.

I once waited in line for an hour after a book reading for him to sign my copies of Naked and Pretty. He signed one "So glad to finally meet you in person" and in the other he drew a doodle of a book and wrote "my next book". Seriously if there is every a house fire I will be grabbing those books. Oh yeah and the cats too.
