David Sedaris, Live and in Paperback

Just in time for beach reading, David Sedaris’ latest, When You Are Engulfed in Flames comes out in paperback this June. His latest collection of essays focuses on him turning 50, matters of death and mid-life crisis-ing. And just in time for plane travel season, Sedaris is also included in a forthcoming collection of stories about air travel, Flight Patterns: A Century of Stories about Flying (also in June.)

He'll be reading at Cal Performances’ "Strictly Speaking" series this Sunday, which we're very excited for.  As one critic aptly put it, “when it comes to fashioning the sardonic wisecrack, the humiliating circumstance, and the absurdist fantasy, there’s nobody better.”
