Book Review Week: "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" by David Sedaris

Unlike Dave Sedaris' other books, this one is inscribed to my father. As a struggling writer, it is is nice to hear what already established authors, especially ones I personally value,have to say.


Because with all of the insecurities, all the doubts, all of the difficulties that are unique to being an author, one does often wake up in the middle of the night wondering, "But is my father enchanting?"

RE: celery

Celery does not come "canned" per se, but you can cheat a smidge and buy pre-cut containers of it in the produce area of Zagara's or Whole Foods. I'm sure buying it from Whole Foods will make you feel more Wholesome, but Zagara's is probably cheaper, and it's celery.

One container = enough celery for the recipe.

Saving you some Effort,

Holy Cow, I guess I never looked because I allow myself no time to look either to the left or the right when shopping but simply grab what I can in five-ten minutes and get on out.

Thankfully my sister made me these huge thing of Mac n jac so I don't need to cook until at least thursday.
