Memoirist David Sedaris to sign at Toronto's Ben McNally Books, July 11

One of my favourite memoirists, David Sedaris, a man with an unerring talent for seeing the wacky humour in his own experiences and letting his readers in on it, will make a stop in Toronto this month to sign copies of his latest book. The following is from the Harbourfront Centre International Readings newsletter:

David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames
Presented in partnership with Ben McNally Books and H.B. Fenn & Company

David Sedaris is the #1 bestselling author of Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked, Holidays on Ice and Barrel Fever. "David Sedaris's ability to transform the mortification of everyday life into wildly entertaining art," (Christian Science Monitor) is elevated to wilder and more entertaining heights than ever in this remarkable new book. When You Are Engulfed in Flames is Sedaris's sixth essay collection.

Sedaris signs copies of When You Are Engulfed in Flames at Ben McNally Books, 366 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario, on Friday, July 11 at 8 p.m.
