Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Darkly funny and gleefully mean-spirited, Sellevision explores greed, obsession and third tier celebrity, in the world of a fictional home shopping network. Welcome to the troubled world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much-loved and handsome (lonely and gay) host of 'Slumber Sunday Sundown' accidentally exposes himself in front of sixty million kids and their parents during a 'Toys for Tots' segment, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max fails to find a job in television, another host, the popular and perky Peggy Jean Smythe is receiving sinister emails about her appearance from a stalker. Popping pills and drinking heavily, she fails to notice that her husband is spending a lot of time with the very young babysitter who lives next door. Then there's Leigh, whose affair with Sellevision boss Howard Toast is going nowhere, until she exposes him on air; and Bebe, Sellevision's star host, who finds Mr. Right through the Internet- if she can just stop her shopping addiction from taking over"--Page 4 of cover

Look me in the eye : my life with asperger's by John Elder Robison( Recording )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Look me in the eye : my life with Asperger's by John Elder Robison( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since he was young, John Robison longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits--an inclination to blurt out non-sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother, Augusten Burroughs, in them)--had earned him the label "social deviant." It was not until he was forty that he was diagnosed with a form of autism called Asperger's syndrome. That understanding transformed the way he saw himself--and the world. A born storyteller, Robison has written a moving, darkly funny memoir about a life that has taken him from developing exploding guitars for KISS to building a family of his own. It's a strange, sly, indelible account--sometimes alien yet always deeply human.--Publisher description
Running with scissors by Augusten Burroughs( Book )

"This is the true story of a boy who wanted to grow up with the Brady Bunch, but ended up living with the Addams Family. Augusten Burrough's mother gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead ringer for Santa Claus and a certifiable lunatic into the bargain. The doctor's bizarre family, a few patients and a sinister man living in the garden shed completed the tableau. In the perfect squalor of their dilapidated Victorian house, there were no rules and there was no school. The Christmas tree stayed up until summer and Valium was chomped down like sweets. And when things got a bit slow, there was always the ancient electroshock therapy machine under the stairs

You may not know it, but you've met Augusten Burroughs. You've seen him on the street, in bars, on the underground, at restaurants: a twenty-something guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten had twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. At the request (well, it wasn't really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr are dashed by the grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. But

Dry by Augusten Burroughs( )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With unconventional wit and a wonderfully weird way of looking at things, Augusten Burroughs chronicles his life on the edge after leaving his deeply eccentric foster family. Dry opens in Manhattan, where Augusten has established a life for himself as a high-paid advertising hotshot. But his past haunts him still as he tries to create a grown-up life. Dry is at times howlingly funny, devastatingly moving, and, in the end, uplifting. It further establishes Burroughs as one of the most original authors writing today

"In chronicling the development and demise of the different relationships he's had while living in New York, Augusten Burroughs examines what it means to be in love, what it means to be in lust, and what it means to be figuring it all out. With Augusten's unique and singular observations and his own unabashed way of detailing both the horrific and the humorous, Lust and Wonder is an intimate and honest memoir that his legions of fans have been waiting for"--

A. Burroughs évoque l'indicible familial et ses relations avec son père, entre haine acerbe et tendresse infinie. Durant toute son enfance, ce père n'a été qu'une présence silencieuse, à peine signalée par une toux éraillée dans la pièce d'à côté et des volutes de tabac. En grandissant, le fossé n'a cessé de se creuser, et progressivement, est né chez l'écrivain un ressentiment sinistre.--[Memento]
