“I haven’t the slightest idea how to change people,” author and humorist David Sedaris wrote in his book, Naked, “but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.” Hopefully, he doesn’t include himself on that list—we like him the way he is. Hear him read from his works, including the recent When You Are Engulfed in Flames, at the Paramount Center for the Arts on April 2. Unlike the usual author readings, Publisher’s Weekly writes that “Sedaris’s sparkling essays always shimmer more brightly when read aloud by the author.”
