Burroughs, Augusten. St Martins Press, New York.2002. hardcover. D/J. Like new condition.

Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusion a Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain. suddenly at age 12, Augusten Burroughs found himself living in a dilapidated Victorian in perfect squalor. The doctor's bizarre family, a few patients, and a pedophile living in the backyard shed completed the tableau. .... 

Running With Scissors is at turns foul and harrowing,, compelling and maniacally funny..... (from jacket notes)
