Has anyone else read this book?

I'm like 2/3 through and so far it's just made me want to kill myself. Does there come a point where the little kid isn't being abused/raped or mind fucked?

I thought this would be about the Weird Al CD.

This is an amazing book. And their making a movie out of it too. All in all Augusten Burroughs is a really talented memoirist. I liked his other book too - Possible Side Effects.

possible side effects is pretty good. i prefer his novels to his short stories just because they only take a couple sittings to finish anyway. his short stories are really great they just leave me wanting a little more, like the first time i read RWS or DRY and was able to enjoy a more extensive plot. i love this man too. Augusten and Banksy man. *sigh*
