Lust & Wonder: A Memoir - Review and Excerpt

Running with Scissors was quite a big book for this author so I was intrigued enough to accept this memoir.  I generally shy away from them.  Augusten is amusingly sarcastic and sardonic in his phrasing and a few of his lines were laugh out loud in public good.  I was going to share and then realized I had an ARC, not a final copy, so no quoting!  

While the book does have it's amusements, it's mainly about Augusten looking for love in all the wrong people.  There's a lot of blatant sexuality in the book so if you shy away from that this might not be the book for you.  

It is a memoir of an interesting writer, who meets other interesting writers and grows his career into what it is today, while continuously seeking the perfect companion.

 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 & Wonder is an intimate and honest memoir that his legions of fans have been waiting for.
