Editorial Reviews

"All of the wisdom he dispenses in his new book-delivered with the dark, acidic humor we've come to expect-is certainly well-earned." -The Boston Globe on This is How"Dry is more than a heartbreaking tale; it's a heroic one. As with its predecessor, we finish the book amazed not only that Burroughs can write so brilliantly, but that he's even alive." -People on Dry"It makes a good run at blowing every other [memoir] out of the water." -Carolyn See, The Washington Post on Running with Scissors"Funny and rich with child's eye details of adults who have gone off the rails." -The New York Times Book Review on Running with Scissors
