    A contest of wills with a deranged cleaning lady. The execution of a rodent carried out with military precision and utter horror. Telemarketing revenge. A different kind of "roof work". Dating an undertaker who drives a mini-van. This is the fabric of Augusten Burroughs's life: a collection of true stories that are universal in their appeal yet unabashedly intimate, stories that shine a flashlight into both dark and hilarious places.

    Overall

    To all those comparing this author to David Sedaris because they are both gay and both write memoirs, please stop. So they are both homosexual and write about their lives -- after that their similarities stop. Anyone who has read Running with Scissors and his followup Dry, understands where this author is coming from. There is a reason why he is darkly funny and considered somewhat into himself. Your perceptions of egotism would change if you knew more about his humor and childhood. Though I didn't think that this was his best work yet, it was very worthy of my time and I enjoyed it. Before you take this one on, make sure you read his other books first.
