Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs( Book )
23 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 731 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

Running with scissors : a memoir by Augusten Burroughs( Book )
63 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 158 libraries worldwide
Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead-ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain. Suddenly, at age twelve, Augusten Burroughs found himself living in a dilapidated Victorian in perfect squalor. The doctor's bizarre family, a few patients, and a pedophile living in the backyard shed completed the tableau. Here, there were no rules, there was no school. The Christmas tree stayed up until summer, and Valium was eaten like Pez. And when things got dull, there was always the vintage electroshock therapy machine under the stairs ... Running with Scissors is at turns foul and harrowing, compelling and maniacally funny. But above all, it chronicles an ordinary boy's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.

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 123 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

Droog by Augusten Burroughs( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in Dutch and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Droog is het verhaal van een man die probeert om zijn herinneringen te verdrinken, zijn demonen te verjagen en zijn verleden te vergeten. Totale ontluistering, beschreven met een originele stem, droge humor, zelfspot en nietsontziende eerlijkheid. Augusten Burroughs heeft een goedbetaalde baan als reclameschrijver in Manhattan, maar zijn privéleven is een ramp. De demonen uit zijn jeugd achtervolgen hem, hij is intens eenzaam en houdt tegelijkertijd angstvallig afstand van degene die van hem houdt. Zijn appartement is een zee van lege whiskyflessen en hij sprenkelt op zijn werk eau de toilette op zijn tong in een vergeefse poging de alcoholdampen te verhullen. Als zijn baas erop staat dat hij hulp zoekt, belandt Augusten in de grimmige realiteit van een ontwenningskliniek, met papieren ziekenhuisslippers, bizarre medeverslaafden, counseling en het gebruik van knuffels in groepstherapie. Augusten wordt gedwongen zichzelf onder de loep te nemen en er begint iets te klikken. Terug in Manhattan komt hij erachter dat afkicken één ding is maar dat het iets anders is om je oude leven weer op te pakken, maar dan zonder de alcohol die daarvan de basis vormde. Zijn gevecht om nuchter te blijven wordt zwaarder en het verslag ervan schokkender wanneer Burroughs een verhouding begint met een crack-verslaafde

Dry by Augusten Burroughs( Book )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 17 libraries worldwide
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( file )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 13 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

Eine aufrichtige, peinigende und gleichzeitig brüllend komische Auseinandersetzung mit der eigenen existenzbedrohenden Alkoholsucht - wer wäre besser in der Lage, so ein Erinnerungsbuch zu schreiben, als Augusten Burroughs?

Sein Privatleben allerdings - Überraschung! - ist ein Desaster. Das superschicke Apartment starrt vor Leergut. Wenn andere nach drei, vier Cocktails nach Hause gehen, fängt für Augusten der Spaß erst richtig an. Und zur Arbeit am nächsten Tag schafft er es auch irgendwie - zur Not mit Aftershave als Mundwasser
