    The Tenth Anniversary Edition of the New York Times bestselling book that has sold over half a million copies in paperback.“I was addicted to “Bewitched” as a kid. I worshipped Darren Stevens the First. When he’d come home from work and Samantha would say, ‘Darren, would you like me to fix you a drink?’ He’d always rest his briefcase on the table below the mirror in the foyer, wipe his forehead with a monogrammed handkerchief and say, ‘Better make it a double.’” (from Chapter Two)You may not know it, but you’ve met Augusten Burroughs. You’ve seen him on the street, in bars, on the subway, at restaurants: a twentysomething guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten was circling the drain by having twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. Loud, distracting ties, automated wake-up calls and cologne on the tongue could only hide so much for so long. At the request (well, it wasn’t really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr. are immediately dashed by grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. But when Augusten is forced to examine himself, something actually starts to click and that’s when he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken Manhattan life—and live it sober. What follows is a memoir that’s as moving as it is funny, as heartbreaking as it is true. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a Higher Power.

    John Robison was not diagnosed with the form of autism called Asperger's syndrome until he was forty. Ever since he was young, he'd longed to connect with other people, but by the time hewas a teenager, his odd habits - an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother, Augustem Burroughs, in them) - had earned him the label 'social deviant.' Transformed by the awarness of his condition, Robison has been able to build a meaningful, loving life, as this moving, darkly funny memoir attests to. 290p.

    After fleeing his parents and dropping out of school at sixteen, John Robison's unusual abilities landed him a gig with KISS, creating their legendary fire-breathing guitars. Later, he drifted into a 'real' job, as an engineer for a major toy company. But the higher he rose, the more he had to pretend to be 'normal' and do what he was worst at: communicate. It wasn't until he was forty that an insightful therapist told him he had a high-functioning form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome. That understanding transformed the way Robison saw himself and the world. In this memoir he recounts the journey from his world into ours. Sometimes harrowing, often slyly funny. 288p.

    From the bestselling author of 'Running with Scissors' and 'Dry' comes a new collection of sordid and side-splitting essays. 'Possible Side Effects' may just be Augusten Burroughs's most provocative collection yet. From a recollection of a visit from the tooth fairy, to a prolonged encounter with a terribly incontinent puppy, 'Possible Side Effects' may include: pleasure, escape, amusement, enlightenment, or general distraction; inappropriate, convulsive laughter, a tingling sensation in the limbs, and sudden gasping; special sensitivity; and various other hilarity-induced afflictions. (Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this book, until you know what effects it may have on you). 291p.

    An Entertainment Weekly Top Ten Book of 2002. The true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her (nut case?) psychiatrist, who just happened to bear a striking resemblance to Santa Claus? and whose 'family' included a pedophile in-residence in the backyard shed. Dysfunctional doesn't really begin to describe this abhorrent upbringing. It's of great credit to the author's will to survive (a ton of valium was always on hand, like a surrogate TV) that this memoir even exists. 'Harrowing' and 'hilarious' kind of collide in mid-air - but, it's a read you might want to get out of your system sooner than later, through no fault of your own. 315p.

    The hilarious first novel by the #1 bestselling author of Running with Scissors, Dry, A Wolf at the Table, and You Better Not Cry, Sellevision is Augusten Burrough's darkly funny and vastly entertaining skewering of a very troubled home-shopping channel.Welcome to the world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much loved and handsome (that is, lonely and gay) host of a "Toys for Tots" segment, accidentally exposes himself in front of millions of kids, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max struggles to find a new job in television, the popular and perky host Peggy Jean Smythe is receiving sinister emails from a stalker. Popping pills and drinking heavily, she fails to notice that her husband is spending a lot of time with the young babysitter who lives next door. Then there's Leigh, whose affair with married Sellevision boss Howard Toast is going nowhere until she announces their relationship on air. A blistering satire of our overcharged, scandal-obsessed world, Sellevision is "an absolute howl . . . wicked fun" (New York Daily News).
