For those of you who may have missed David Sedaris' visit to the Lower Downtown Tattered Cover, here is a brief review from Bookseller Bonnie:
You know when you're flying and you are just sure that the person next to you is farting their ass off? According to David Sedaris it might not be them but in fact the put-together flight attendants roaming the aisles. A reader of his clued him in, "We call it crop dusting," she said.
Now that I think of it, David told a lot of fart jokes on Sunday. People were practically peeing their pants as he read from his newest book When You Are Engulfed In Flames. And speaking about peeing your pants, he talked about that too. Who would have thought that potty humor would lead to some of the best writing of all time?
After his reading, David signed every book for every person who wanted one. Most readers also got little drawings and a chat with the author as well. He signed books for more then 6 hours and was delightfully personable. What a treat for the Tattered Cover!
