I've come across an author that has kindled something that I haven't had happen to me since the 80s: A raging need to devour his books one right after the other.
It's a rather unhealthy habit, because one reads them too fast (wanting to get to the next book) and then, later on, one has to re-read them, just to see what I missed. I'm reading Possible Side Effects now.
Augusten Burroughs is a witty, intelligent, funny and eloquent writer with a well-honed set of literary skills and a superbly conditioned stack of writing muscles.
This is a visual arts blog, but every once in a while I meander around (I love that word: meander, especially when applied to the Greek architectural element that no one else knows about) to books, movies, etc.
In fact, his stories have given me some new ideas for some drawings... expect to see some Augusten Burroughs inspired art soon.
Read Augusten Burroughs now!
