From the author: 'My father doesn't feature much in Running with Scissors. And one of the reasons for this is because he didn't feature much in my life. But there's another reason, too: Our relationship was so complicated, so dark, so confusing and so big, that to tell the story would require a book. So finally, upon the death of my father in 2005, I decided to tell the story I have been most afraid yet most compelled to tell.' This prequel to international hit Running With Scissors tells the story of Augusten's relationship with his tormented father: a man who sent his wife mad and saw his other son run away from home, prior to Augusten going into foster care. Harrowing, insightful and amusing by turns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"So touching and wonderfully written that anyone else with "a no misery memoir" rule should make an exception" * London Lite *
"There is a depth here that moves his prose to another level. He has written a chilling, dark and deeply unsettling book that is, nonetheless, compulsive reading" * Attitude *
"A hauntingly well-crafted account of his difficult relationship with his father" * Irish Sunday Independent *
"Burroughs's gift is to look into the lion's mouth and find sweetness" * Fay Weldon *
