Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

The movie is barely tolerable but the book is perfection.

From 1966 until maybe 1980 or so, Augusten and I lived in a parallel universe. While reading the book, I can't tell you how many times I said, "This is my life". Sometimes I said it aloud.

His ability to put a giggly spin on the most outrageous events and interactions is simply brilliant.

And healing. And life affirming.
