Excellent book - I've read some reviews of Burroughs work where they compare him to David Sedaris (who I adore), but other than being gay and funny, comparison stops there. He is so open about his life - painfully so at times - and it really drew me in to his story. With a lot of humor and a gift for communicating the grotesque in a light handed way, Burroughs is an amazing writer. I listen in my car on MP3 player and found myself sitting in parking lots, outside of my house, etc. just so I could keep listening before I had to stop the player.
Well written and also well read...I was enthralled by this book from start to finish. The descriptions of the characters, the setting - Kidd depicts the South right down to sounds, smells, food, conflict, etc. so wonderfully. If I had been reading rather than listening, I wouldn't have been able to put this one down.
