A good follow up to "Running with Scissors", but can be read without having read the prequel.

I really liked this book. I felt guilty for having laughed so much at the expense of someone else's misery, but I couldn't help it. Augusten Burroughs has a talent for dark humor.

Great book, the way it's written made it so I could hardly put it down. Like a wonderful conversation I wanted it to keep on going.

This is a poignant story of addiction and mental health, sometimes disturbing but brutally honest.
