I recently purchased my first Augusten Burroughs novel. It's titled Possible Side Effects and it is a memoir about his childhood and recent life, and I must say it is fantastic.
I was a bit skeptical about the author but looked him up on Amazon and did the "look inside the book" option for some of his memoirs and novels. Right off the bat, I loved that he writes about his life. I also love the fact that he is very humorous and keeps the reader entertained with multiple stories that are just perfect. I definitely love his writing style and have ordered two more of his memoirs: Running with Scissors and Dry.
