Book of the Month

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

Running with Scissors is a memoir recounting the adolescent years of Augusten Burroughs' life.  The story follows Augusten as he goes from living with his fighting parents to living with his mother's psychiatrist, Dr. Finch, in a rundown victorian house in Northampton, Massachusetts.  Character is a key component to this story as the reader learns more about the dysfunctional Finch family, Augusten's mother, and Augusten's ventures on his own coming-of-age path.  What we really enjoy about this book is the character, quirkiness, and humor (both upfront and dark) that linger throughout.  Once you are done reading the book, the 2003 film adaption is highly recommended for laughs, tears, a great cast, and a well-tuned soundtrack.  Learn more about Augusten Burroughs and his other publications here.
