Description

National Bestseller


From the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Running with Scissors" comes Augusten Burroughs's most provocative collection of true stories yet. From nicotine gum addiction to lesbian personal ads to incontinent dogs, "Possible Side Effects" mines Burroughs's life in a series of uproariously funny essays. These are stories that are uniquely Augusten, with all the over-the-top hilarity of "Running with Scissors, " the erudition of "Dry, " and the breadth of "Magical Thinking." A collection that is universal in its appeal and unabashedly intimate, "Possible Side Effects "continues to explore that which is most personal, mirthful, disturbing, and cherished, with unmatched audacity. A cautionary tale in essay form. Be forewarned--hilarious, troubling, and shocking results might occur.
