The Fresh Breeze of David Sedaris

April 13th, 2009 - written by Brian Utley

So I’m through with Things I Have Learned So Far and all the related correspondence. We’ll see what answers we can get there.

My next book is David Sedaris’s When You Are Engulfed In Flames. I don’t have to be at work for 4 hours, since it’s 5 AM right now, so I’m starting the book now.

Previous Sedaris favorites include:

  • Me Talk Pretty One Day
  • Naked
  • Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim

All were a joy to read. I’m expecting nothing less from this one.

David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed In Flames

    Hi, Brian. I, too, am doing the book-a-week thing this year. I am subscribed to your blog (in Google Reader) and am enjoying following your reading and your impressions of each book.

    Wondering about your reading schedule. (Perhaps you’ve blogged about it before and I’ve just overlooked it?) It has, at times, been a struggle for my to keep my reading pace up–my daily newspaper, daily blogs, daily New York Times online, weekly New Yorker, weekly Sports Illustrated, monthly National Geographic, along with some abysmally bad freshman essays (I’m a teacher) seem to always get in the way of that week’s book. Fortunately, I’m an early riser (4:20 a.m.), but still…life intrudes.

    Do you have hints/pointers/suggestions?
