One Question for David Sedaris

David Sedaris appeared at our local bookstore over the weekend promoting When You Are Engulfed in Flames. He is so funny and such a good speaker I wanted to set up an interview with him. I contacted his publicist but she said his flight was getting in with just enough time to get to the bookstore event. I opted for the only chance I had. I asked him a quick question in the signing line.

Chantrelle: “If you could only eat food from one region or country for the rest of your life, what would you limit yourself to?”

Without pause, David Sedaris: “Italian food.”

Chantrelle: “Any specific type of Italian food?”

David: “If I just had to roam northern Italy and eat food…”

Chantrelle: “That wouldn’t be so bad!”

So that was it. I forgot to congratulate him on his Audie award, or ask him about sitting next to Neil Gaiman at the award ceremony and getting help sending his first text message ever. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to ask him more interesting questions, but that was a quick signing line one I could throw out there.
