When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris.
I had heard that this guy was funny. But oh my, was this a boring book. It kept leading up to funny, but.........wasn't funny. He kept telling parts of jokes, where the punch-line was clearly missing.
Even the NY Times reviewer disliked it:
"With many of these tales, the reader has the sense that Mr. Sedaris is scraping the bottom of the barrel for material, writing for the sake of producing another book, vamping for time instead of looking within or trying something new."
I'm glad I just checked it out of the library and didn't buy it!
