…Memoirist Augusten Burroughs

In books, magazines on April 29, 2008 at 3:27 pm

Memoirs are a hawt topic these days, with all kinds of scandal going on and such. Thoroughly enjoyed this piece from NY MAG on Running with Scissors (and now, cash) author Augusten Burroughs. The author set out to disprove them, and it was humorous about what Burroughs didn’t remember, but was scary what he did.

Having a good memory is apparently a talent that society fails to properly recognize, or at least are skeptical of. How Burroughs describes the author of the mag piece at the end is eerie.
