Publisher Description

The hilarious first novel by the #1 bestselling author of Running with Scissors, Dry, A Wolf at the Table, and You Better Not Cry, Sellevision is Augusten Burrough's darkly funny and vastly entertaining skewering of a very troubled home-shopping channel.

Welcome to the world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much loved and handsome (that is, lonely and gay) host of a "Toys for Tots" segment, accidentally exposes himself in front of millions of kids, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max struggles to find a new job in television, the popular and perky host Peggy Jean Smythe is receiving sinister emails from a stalker. Popping pills and drinking heavily, she fails to notice that her husband is spending a lot of time with the young babysitter who lives next door. Then there's Leigh, whose affair with married Sellevision boss Howard Toast is going nowhere until she announces their relationship on air. A blistering satire of our overcharged, scandal-obsessed world, Sellevision is "an absolute howl . . . wicked fun" (New York Daily News).

Bruce Ridgway ,

Favorite author ever

Augusten Burroughs has to be the, hands down, best author of my time. I'm a 22 year old gay man and I have found his work to be a handbook of sorts. I've experienced many of the same things as he. (I've read every book published) sellevison is such a different turn being the last of the books I've read. I love the fact that it is fictional but his point of view is incorporated fabulously. If you love to laugh, and ACTUALLY have a sense of humor, read this book. But, I implore you to read the others first. Starting with "running with scissors" I've been addicted since, I have all the books on my shelf and on iBooks!!!!! <3
