Got this at the at a library used book sale. Beautiful condition.

I thought it was fascinating. It was a quick read- I literally couldn't put it down. There's something about crazy, wacky families that, apart from making me feel better about my own, is very appealing. My favorite part of nonfiction is the glimpse of someone else's life... and what a life- or, what a childhood at least!

Sort of makes me want to move my furniture out onto the lawn and set up an electroshock therapy machine and a Christmas tree there! LOL Seriously, though, I found parts appalling, others sad, others hilarious, others touching, others just downright shocking. What incredible people- sometimes real life can be more amazing than fiction. I'm so glad Augusten has such a sense of human; it seems mandatory after all he's been through. Running with Scissors was an eye-opening story and I'm looking forward to reading his next book now.

I'm adding this to Scoobs-buddy GLBT July '09 bookbox. I hope whoever ends up with this book enjoys it as much as I did!
