Full of it

I liked running with scissors, then didn't care for magical thinking, and I care even less for lust & wonder. This is basically a day to day journal entry about the little things he does here and there - over the course of a few relationships. In the end, we know he has money, buys expensive jewels and is friends with piper and red from OITNB. Ugh

Perfect

I have always felt so connected to this author and this is no exception. Such a great read.

Masterpiece of descriptive ingenuity

Once again, yet seemingly better each time, Augusten captivates through his illustrative voice—a familiar yet provocative, easy page-turner.
