Funny, wry, and sometimes painful, like all of Burroughs' writing. In the top of this genre.

If you enjoyed "Running with Scissors" you'll definitely enjoy this book. I couldn't put it down.

Unfortunately, I couldn't shake the feeling that he heavily embellished the last story. I found it too dramatic and not worth ending the book with.
