I recently finished When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, and it was pretty funny. It was my first David Sedaris book, and I wasn't disappointed. Essentially, it's a collection of stories from his life, focusing on when he lived in France and when he quit smoking, with some random stories thrown in there. Sedaris tells a good story, and I found myself laughing out loud on the L multiple times.
As you may know, I'm fascinated by serial killers. I'm pretty sure I should have gone into forensic psychology instead of trapeze artistry, but then again, I should have done a lot of things differently. Anyway, per the recommendation of Ari, I started reading Whoever Fights Monsters: My Twenty Years Tracking Serial Killers for the FBI by Robert Ressler and Tom Shachtman. Ressler is a former FBI profiler who coined the term "serial killer," and the book recounts his efforts to profile and track down serial killers. Thus far, it's pretty good.
