I fell in love with Augusten Burroughs back when Running With Scissors was released. Such a crazy tale, offensive to some, but an unforgettable and well-written one. I loved his follow-up, Dry, even more, despite its more serious tone. Some of his other memoirs have been hit or miss for me, and while I enjoyed them all for the most part, I didn't think they were as good as those first two. Lust & Wonder, however, ranks up there in the top 3 for me.

This one more or less picks up where Dry left off. After a relapse but then finally seeming to keep the alcoholism at bay, this memoir focuses primarily on Augusten's long-term relationships while living in New York City. Though still somewhat of an eccentric person, he does a little growing up during this period, but like many people, struggles to find that special someone to spend the rest of his life with.

I love Augusten's writing style. And I love listening to him read his own audiobooks. I could listen to the man read for days on end. He can be very blunt and in-your-face, but he's also the type of writer I'd love to just sit down and have a chat with. I'm not sure what's on the horizon for Burroughs' writing future, but I do hope he still has some tales to tell. ( )

I'll admit I'm a Burroughs fan. That being said I did truly enjoy this book Broken into three sections each of which chronicles his life with three different boyfriends. The first part he's involved with a an already established writer who sees himself as an utter failure as he has not published again. Augusten slowly but surely begins to question if he was ever truly in love with this man. The 2nd he's involved with Dennis. The pair move in together and after time build a 3 story house together in Massachusetts. Unfortunately thing finally come to head for the pair of them while living there. Dennis keeps his resentment all bottled inside. Upon receiving an e-mail from Augusten he gives him a several pages long list of his flaws. The final 3rd of the book is devoted to Christopher Augusten's always jovial agent. Augusten had tried to deny his ardor for him for years including his time while with Dennis. But it seems in Christopher he has finally met his match. Christopher is the perfect foil or diffuser for Augusten's worry ridden life. This one is much lighter than some of his previous books. I almost hate to say it but this one leaves you with an almost good feeling for Augusten and Christopher. ( )

Just when I broke my sobriety and started drinking again in moderate and controlled measure exactly like a normal person, I met this guy who wasn't just a guy but a writer, and not just a writer but the author of one of my favorite books.
