  • PRAISE FOR WHEN YOU ARE ENGULFED IN FLAMES:

    "It's not just that Sedaris's crisp prose is humorous. What makes his work a consistent joy to read is his deliciously skewed vision of the world, and his deadpan delivery." (Boston Globe).

  • "Sedaris is the preeminent humorist of his generation." (Entertainment Weekly).

  • "David Sedaris is horribly observant. He sees things as they are.... He'll be telling some weird story, and all of a sudden, just at the end, it turns out not only to be about him, but also about you." (New York Observer).

  • "Sedaris is certainly worthy of hero worship-he so breezily translates the landscape through his bent, prismatic view that he makes you forget what a skillful narrator he is." (Charlotte Observer).

  • "Glorious....What makes Sedaris's work transcendent is its humanity....He's the best there is."
    (People).
