Today I finished reading "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" by David Sedaris. I actually had this book on hold at my public library since before it came out in June 2008 but I didn't get my hands on it until about a week ago. I always enjoy Sedaris' dark humor and visual grossness. What other author would describe in detail an expedition to buy his boyfriend a human skeleton for a birthday gift, only to have the skeleton whisper truths about mortality "You are going to die." from its prominent location on the ceiling in the bedroom?
Reading in Montana is a small, family-run, online bookstore out of Portland, Oregon. We are a family of readers; a librarian, historian, and curious preschooler. We are in this business because we enjoy finding books for readers, readers for books, and sharing what we read with others.
