such a dismissive comment truer than ever For readers familiar with Holidays on Ice, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, and Me Talk Pretty One Day, there is little Funny and Original to enjoy from When You Are Engulfed in Flames And especially for readers of The New Yorker like myself, where most of the essays in this publication were initially published, there is a lot to be desired.A few highlights include an explanation for why Sedaris does not believe in God Because I have hair on my back, and a lot of other people, people who kill and rob and make life miserable, don t A real God
