Dry by Augusten Burroughs

Dry. A Memoir.

Today I finished reading Dry by Augusten Burroughs, a truly excellent book by the author of Running with Scissors and Wolf at the Table. It’s a very quick but deep read that I hereby recommend to everybody.

This book is basically about Augusten’s alcoholism, how he was forced to take a leave from his well-paid job in advertising in order to go to rehab and how he thought, “Great, 30 days off work, I can get drunk every day!” Sometimes it’s hilarious, sometimes terrifying and always amazingly honest.

If you’ve read Running with Scissors and didn’t like it, you still should give Dry or Wolf At The Table a chance. They’re much better and very different. It’s worth it.
