Not all writers are suited to read their work aloud. But Augusten Burroughs brings both attitude and gravitas to the material in his new work. Burroughs reminiscences of his early days, and his reproduction of his Grandmother Caroline's Southern accent is both funny and loving. Burroughs uses his insight into the characters in his life to add color and depth. The maturation of the author is reflected in his delivery of pieces on his purchase of a dog he was too drunk to take care of, his purchase of a endearing dog with a bladder-control problem, and the dawning of his realization that everyone is worthy of love.
