      "Running with Scissors" One of my favorite books... by (and about) one of my favorite authors. There's a movie, too.

      Hard to believe this is a true story, so worth reading. Augusten Burroughs is VERY good.


      Running with Scissors: A Memoir by Augusten Burroughs Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist. The funny, harrowing and bestselling account of an ordinary boy’s survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.
