A cursory and curious listing of books and literatrivia. 

When You Are Engulfed in Flames

When You Are Engulfed in Flames - Sedaris continues to write witty and humorous stories based on his life, but it seems as though most of the interesting experiences he's had since his last book have taken place in either taxis or hotel rooms. No doubt that's a reflection of his life, but it's considerably less engrossing than his last collection, Me Talk Pretty One Day.Still, there are some gut-busting moments and some touching ones too. Or should I say touched? A talented writer -- I'd love to see him try to write some fiction, because if you can make reality sing, then fiction should be easy.As a side note, this if the first book I read on my iPhone (using Stanza) and I thoroughly enjoyed that part of it. (Once I figured out how I could see where I was in the book.) Perhaps this ebook thing has a chance after all...
