You may not know it, but you've met Augusten Burroughs. You've seen him on the street, in bars, on the subway, at restaurants: a twentysomething guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten was circling the drain by having twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. Loud, distracting ties, automated wake-up calls and cologne on the tongue could only hide so much for so long. 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 immediately dashed by grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. But when Augusten is forced to examine himself, something actually starts to click and 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 Manhattan life - and live it sober. What follows is a memoir that's as moving as it is funny, as heartbreaking as it is true. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a Higher Power. Download and start listening now!

    " Very funny and moving. I enjoyed Dry much more than Running with Scissors (which I found to be a bit ridiculous and at times draining). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Roberta | 2/8/2014

    " The author had one of the strangest childhoods, horrible parents, and a substance abuse problem, but Augusten Burroughs still manages to write about it all without completely sounding like a victim. He is able to make you laugh and cry all on the same page. I enjoyed this book very much and I hope he continues to live a sober life. "

    " Excellent book about getting sober. "

    " Since this is the sequel (kind of) to Running With Scissors, I was expecting it to be hilarious. It's not, at all, but I'm still really glad I read it. "
