Augusten Burroughs's "Running with Scissors" was 'funnier and more alarming than any memoir in recent history' ("Independent on Sunday"). "Dry" proved that he could do it again. And now, with these true stories, his fans are in for a treat. "Magical Thinking" gives voice to thoughts we all have but dare not mention. What makes the collection so original is Augusten's sharp-eyed observations about things that are unique to him, but somehow universal to us all.
