When Engulfed in Flames
by David Sedaris
Mr. Sedaris writes short, self depreciating essay's about his life, but the genius is in their pure comic timing. I like his philosophy that everything is funny. While reading his work is great, to truly experience ityou need o hear it. Mr. Sedaris is a regular contributor to NPR and that is where I first experienced him. He comes form a large family including his also funny sister Amy.
I highly reccommend all of his works, but while he is generally appropriate for most audiences, you may not want to listen to him with the kids.
Here he reads one of his ssay's on theLetterman show.
