Rate this:
With unconventional wit and a wonderfully weird way of looking at things, Augusten Burroughs chronicles his life on the edge after leaving his deeply eccentric foster family. Dry opens in Manhattan, where Augusten has established a life for himself as a high-paid advertising hotshot. But his past haunts him still as he tries to create a grown-up life. Dry is at times howlingly funny, devastatingly moving, and, in the end, uplifting. It further establishes Burroughs as one of the most original authors writing today.

Very interesting. Burroughs is a great writer and has a good sense of humour!

Probably the best autobiography about alcoholism I have ever read probably because I could relate to him. But, the book is not all doom and gloom. Burroughs has quite a sense of humour, and doesn't spare himself when it comes to relating some embarrassing moment. I laughed through the book, but I also cried. I was reading the book in my work lunchroom, and came across a passage that just set me off in tears, and of course everyone was wondering what was wrong. When I talked to people who have read the book, they KNEW which passage set me off.

Even if you are not an alcoholic, read this book
