This book was a hard read. I felt it was fairly disturbing and some things were difficult to believe. But if you're looking for aomething over the top that is supposed to be real, read this book. Just maybe not before bed. I had nightmares the entire week I spent reading it. ( )

This is one of my favorite, non humorous memoirs I have read. I really felt for Burroughs as he describes growing up with his father, a man that "bonds" with his son through frankly scary situations. The event in the description, a dream about helping his father bury a man, is one of many events that the author goes through with his dad. A raw, descriptive, and powerful memoir. I would definitely recommend reading this book if you like memoirs. ( )

Read this in just under 24 hours, was not sure what to expect and must say I'm a bit surprised. Other reviewers have commented on Burroughs wit etc, this one has a much darker tone to it. It is tales of Augusten growing up with and without his father.

His father through the eyes of young Augusten is an old arthritic alcoholic with knee problems and it seems some mental problems as well. He tells of raging fights between his parents when they are drunk and he goes and hides in his room. Other times he has "dreams" of a man, possibly his father, chasing him through the woods at night with a flashlight. How when Augusten was very young he would run up to his father and want a hug each night as he got home only to be rebuffed. His father shouting for him to go away and it was his alone time.

The author gives his youthful self a very adult attitude which I'm sure would not have been the case but we need to allow him some artistic license. What child of 8-9 would keep a notebook on how many times his father rebuffed him for wanting a hug or to sit in his lap as opposed to the times he's allowed to do so. Mostly of the book is about Augusten's very early years. We do get some looks into their adult relationship. Calls made once a week to his dad, one of which is really disturbing. Finally leading up to the death of his father, with the lack of emotion being the most disturbing. ( )

Rubbish. Badly written, hilariously over the top and nakedly self-serving memoir about the author's terrible father. The writing is so shameless and ludicrous that you quickly find yourself doubting the whole story and feeling sympathy for the monstrous father. This is my first shot at one of Augusten Burroughs' books (an op-shop pick up for $1) and it'll be my last. ( )

For Christopher Schelling, who is short and mean and saved my life and gave me every start that I pointed to. This book belongs to you. Because I never could have written it without your brutish and relentless love. I know I never say it, but I cherish you and love you with all my heart.
