Book Summary:

"David Sedaris's ability to transform the mortification of everyday life into wildly entertaining art," (The Christian Science Monitor) is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this remarkable new book. Trying to make coffee when the water is shut off, David considers using the water in a vase of flowers and his chain of associations takes him from the French countryside to a hilariously uncomfortable memory of buying drugs in a mobile home in rural North Carolina. In essay after essay, Sedaris proceeds from bizarre conundrums of daily life-having a lozenge fall from your mouth into the lap of a fellow passenger on a plane or armoring the windows with LP covers to protect the house from neurotic songbirds-to the most deeply resonant human truths. Culminating in a brilliant account of his venture to Tokyo in order to quit smoking, David Sedaris's sixth essay collection is a new masterpiece of comic writing from "a writer worth treasuring" (Seattle Times). Praise for When You Are Engulfed in Flames: "Older, wiser, smarter and meaner, Sedaris...defies the odds once again by delivering an intelligent take on the banalities of an absurd life." --Kirkus Reviews This latest collection proves that not only does Sedaris still have it, but he's also getting better....Sedaris's best stuff will still--after all this time--move, surprise, and entertain." --Booklist Table of Contents: It's Catching Keeping Up The Understudy This Old House Buddy, Can You Spare a Tie?

Book Summary:

Fire & Water - a combination of two elements which would normally cancel the other out. Not in Ebony & Aiden's case, instead it created steam. A lot of steam. And that steam was fuelled from within, the connection of their souls awakening the elements within them. Ebony Stevens grew up in a small town, she had a wonderful childhood and two very amazing friends. Despite this, she felt like there was just something missing from her life. She had never been in love, and her friends gushing over guys had never really connected with her. Aiden Steele had a hard upbringing. He'd bounced through the foster system after his parents had passed away, never really feeling the love of family but he had found comfort and a place with his friends. The moment his gold flecked eyes met her aqua flecked ones, Ebony melted into a puddle. Their connection was instant, it was real, it was heart stopping.. it was epic. And once their bodies connected, there was no going back. This is their story.
