When You Are Engulfed In FlamesI remember talking about books with a friend one day many years ago. She was raving about this hilarious book called Me Talk Pretty One Day. I assumed it was about . ..how do I say this...a mentally challenged person. "You HAVE to read it!" she yelled. So....I checked it out of the library and didn't get past page one. I'm a tough audience. I'm hard to make laugh. I'll smile politely at a joke, offer a giggle but to solicit a guffaw, it just doesn't happen too frequently. I guess I imagined the book would be like a collection of knee slapping jokes.
Sooooo when I heard about this book, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, I figured I'd try it. I do have a soft spot for funny gay men. And funny gay men writers? Love them.
I began the book last night and am already halfway through it. Its so ...funny! Entertaining. And I did laugh out loud a handful of times. Its an amusing and fun read and I can't wait to finish it up tonight. And now I'm going to have to go back and try out Me Talk Pretty One Day and all the other books in between.
