Book review: When You Are Engulfed In Flames


David Sedaris is a brilliant chronicler of the innermost thoughts we all have but never verbalise – the imagined slights, the petty annoyances, the vengeful reactions – that flash through the mind and are gone in a nanosecond.

That he is able to capture them with such clarity is remarkable, but it’s his idiosyncratic perspective that brings humour to the most unexpected places. There aren’t many books that make me laugh out loud, but this is one of them.
