From the million-copy bestselling author of "Running with Scissors" comes Augusten Burroughs's most provocative collection yet.
Augusten Burroughs is:
"One of the most compelling and screamingly funny voices of the new century."
---"USA Today"
"Deliciously perverse."
"Endearingly neurotic...he hooks you into a story better than anybody."
---"Entertainment Weekly"
"Outrageously magical...surprisingly thoughtful."
---"The Atlanta Journal-Constitution"
This book is approved for consumption by those seeking pleasure, escape, amusement, enlightenment, or general distraction. This book is not approved to treat disorders such as eBay addiction or incessant blind dating.
In studies, some people reported inappropriate, convulsive laughter, a tingling sensation in the limbs, and sudden gasping. Fewer than 1 percent reported narcolepsy.
Doll collectors may experience special sensitivity, as may discourteous drivers, candy-company brand managers, and nicotine-gum users.
This book has been shown to be especially helpful to those with parents, grandparents, life partners, and incontinent dogs. People with dry, cracked skin have responded well to this book, as have people with certain heart conditions.
Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this book, until you know what effects it may have on you.
This text is contraindicated in those suffering from certain psychiatric disorders, including---but not limited to---readers afflicted with anhedonia, which is the inability to experience pleasure.
Ask your doctor about "Possible Side Effects."
