The Other Ms Amy

David Sedaris has a new book out called, When You are Engulfed in Flames. This is his first book since 2004's Dress Your Family In Corduroy And Denim. On Thursday 11th September David will be reading from his new non-fiction collection in the Westin Hotel, College Green, here in Dublin. That event is brought to his many Irish fans by a certain bookstore. More details here. "Me Talk Pretty One Day is still David's most well known book and I think that I am the only gay man who didn't love that book to death. But maybe I'll give it another go before reading his newest collection. A Sedaris who I really love is his sister Amy. She isn't as well known as her brother in Europe but America loves her and so it should. Amy has appeared in the greatest Christmas film of all time; Elf, one of the biggest films of all time; Shrek The Third, one of the most underrated Romance and Cigarettes and one or two of her own; Strangers With Candy. She is a regular guest on David Letterman show and also on the Martha Stewart show which turned out to be one of her funniest TV guest spots. Here that clip!
