When You Are Engulfed in Flames (Lol)

by Team Intern

Not that spontaneous combustion and the like are our brand of humor, but David Sedaris sure as hell is. After all, he is the bro of our former cover girl Amy. Catch him tonight at The Strand in NYC where he will be reading excerpts from his newest collection of essays curiously titled, When You Are Engulfed in Flames.

Topics include how to make coffee when the water is shut off, buying drugs in a mobile home in rural North Carolina, having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger on a plane, lancing a boil from his backside and venturing to Japan in order to quit smoking.  

What more could you ask for, really?

 The line begins at 5 p.m. A few of the BUST ‘terns will be there. Will you?

(Note: David Sedaris has quit smoking since this photo was taken).
