Favorite Book: Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs
Blurb about it: Running with Scissors is a 2002 memoir by American writer Augusten Burroughs. The book tells the story of Burroughs's bizarre childhood life after his mother, who had an obsession with Anne Sexton, sent him to live with her psychiatrist. Running with Scissors spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. (Wikipedia)
I love this author in general. His other books are interesting too, he has a great ability to tell his story in narrative form. His other books are Possible Side Effects, A Wolf at the Table, Magical Thinking, You Better Not Cry, etc.
