{When You Are Engulfed in Flames}


When You Are Engulfed in Flames is a forthcoming collection of essays by David Sedaris, which is set to be released on June 3rd, 2008.

Sedaris's sixth essay collection assembles essays on trying to make coffee when the water is shut off, associations in the French countryside, 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, armoring windows with LP covers to protect the house from neurotic songbirds, lancing a boil from his backside, and venturing to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, which features the memorable line: "I hated leaving a hole in the smoking world, and so I recruited someone to take my place."

Sedaris fans will be happy to hear about his breakneck tour for this book. Beginning on June 4th, Sedaris will embark on a 29-cities-in-29-days tour of bookstores. This tour should be a good warm-up for his fall tour of theatres where he will perform at 33 venues in 33 days.
