A WOLF AT THE TABLE A Memoir of My Father

by | Read by Augusten Burroughs

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Be prepared for something completely different from popular author/satirist Augusten Burroughs. From the opening track, an original song by rocker Patti Smith, to the emotionally draining epilogue, listeners are in for an unusual and innovative listening experience. Including songs and sound effects, Burroughs’s newest memoir is the story of a sensitive child longing for love from an emotionally unavailable father, a dangerous, even deadly man, given to playing demented “games.” Burroughs’s narrative voice is shivery, breathy, slow, and humorless, for there is nothing humorous here. Intense, sincere, and passionate, Burroughs offers a deeply felt, intimate portrait of the most disastrous period in his life. He holds nothing back, and in fully giving voice to his emotions, he makes each moment immediate for the listener. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
