Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs Summary

Now including an excerpt from Lust & Wonder, a new memoir coming in March 2016. 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.

Courir avec des ciseaux by Augusten BURROUGHS Summary

Roman autobiographique choc, Courir avec des ciseaux est le récit tragicomique d'une enfance et d'une adolescence hors norme, dans l'Amérique déjantée des années 1970. Dans l'ombre de parents psychotiques, Augusten rêve de gloire et de paillettes. Lorsque son psy devient son tuteur légal, une vie encore plus déjantée s'ouvre à lui, dans un foyer stupéfiant d'extravagance. Libre à chacun de mâchouiller des croquettes pour chiens devant la télé ou de jouer avec la machine à électrochocs. Le récit poignant et hilarant d'une enfance pas comme les autres. " Augusten Burroughs se raconte drôlement bien : le comique de la situation est répercuté de scène en scène, jusqu'à la fin, pour ombrager pudiquement le drame de la perte de l'enfance.

Déboire by Augusten BURROUGHS Summary

Après Courir avec des ciseaux, récit autobiographique de son adolescence, l'auteur récidive avec Déboire et nous livre le témoignage drôle et poignant de son combat contre l'alcoolisme. Augusten, autodidacte ambitieux et la vingtaine bien tapée, se trouve propulsé comme créatif dans l'univers impitoyable de la publicité à New York.

Une tare qui l'expulse illico de sa boîte de Pandore pour le catapulter dans un centre de désintoxication aussi gay qu'invraisemblable et tout bonnement décalé. ...

Running With Scissors by L a Witt Summary

Eighteen months ago, drummer Jude Colburn made the biggest mistake of his life when he walked away from his band just as they were on the brink of success. Now, he's got a second chance. The band's bassist just quit, and Jude plays bass almost as well as he plays drums. The other band members aren't thrilled, but they are desperate. Running with Scissors needs him, but there's one condition: no hooking up with bandmates. That's what ruined things eighteen months ago, after all. Jude's on board, but no one warned him about the drummer who replaced him. A.J. Palmer is shy and unassuming . . . until he hits the stage. He gets Jude's attention from the first beat, and suddenly that "no hookups" rule isn't so easy to follow. Keeping secrets on a tour bus isn't easy either, and it's only a matter of time before the band catches on. When everything hits the fan, Jude has to choose: a second chance at the career he's always regretted leaving, or a shot at the man of his dreams? This 82,000 word novel was previously published.

Nobody, Nowhere, My Life Running with Scissors, a Person Centered Fiction by Anna Mouse Summary

The year is 1995, and Gina leaves a failed relationship for a California Dream, only to find she can’t afford rent in the promised land. That’s OK, she’s not alone; the nonprofit social service agency that hires her into an entry level mental health job is dominated by a gang of sophomoric slackers, who literally spend 24/7 on the job; since they don’t get paid enough to pay rent, they simply don’t. It’s a makeshift commune of sorts, evolved of necessity. This fictional biography is a darkly comic, social services satire; the action has moved off the grounds of the State Hospital into the four bedroom, two bath homes of suburbia, and the developmentally disabled have been delivered into the hands of underpaid nonconformists, who cheerfully orchestrate the insanity around them into a performance piece they call their lives. It is a story of familiar people and familiar passions, played out in the unfamiliar territory of institutionalized suburbia.

Dry by Augusten Burroughs Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Running with Scissors comes Augusten Burroughs's most provocative memoir. Outrageously fuinny and scorchingly honest. 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 when Augusten is forced to examine himself, that's when he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken life - and live it sober.

This Is How by Augusten Burroughs Summary

If you're fat and fail every diet, if you're thin but can't get thin enough, if you lose your job, if your child dies, if you are diagnosed with cancer, if you always end up with exactly the wrong kind of person, if you always end up alone, if you can't get over the past, if your parents are insane and ruining your life, if you really and truly wish you were dead, if you feel like it's your destiny to be a star, if you believe life has a grudge against you, if you don't want to have sex with your spouse and don't know why, if you feel so ashamed, if you're lost in life. If you have ever wondered, How am I aupposed to survive this? This is How.

NOSFERA2 by Joe Hill Summary

Horreur et fantastique sont des mots presque trop simples tant l’univers de Joe Hill nous plonge dans un maelström de sensations envoûtantes. « L’innocence » de ses personnages confrontée à des situations profondément dérangeantes crée un climat qui vous hante longtemps après la lecture. Il suffit que Victoria monte sur son vélo et passe sur le vieux pont derrière chez elle pour ressortir là où elle le souhaite. Elle sait que personne ne la croira. Elle-même n’est pas vraiment sûre de comprendre ce qui lui arrive. Charles possède lui aussi un don particulier. Il aime emmener des enfants dans sa Rolls-Royce de 1938. Un véhicule immatriculé NOSFERA2. Grâce à cette voiture, Charles et ses innocentes victimes échappent à la réalité et parcourent les routes cachées qui mènent à un étonnant parc d’attractions appelé Christmasland, où l’on fête Noël tous les jours ; la tristesse hors la loi mais à quel prix... Victoria et Charles vont finir par se confronter. Les mondes dans lesquels ils s’affrontent sont peuplés d’images qui semblent sortir de nos plus terribles cauchemars.
