Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs
Augusten Burroughs returns again with his third book, another collection of memoirs and essays. His life, which he has chronicled in Running with Scissors and Dry, has been as odd and unconventional as perhaps any life could. Magical Thinking, which refers to the false impression that we can influence events by thinking about them, consists of more strange moments from his life that illuminate common truths in all our behaviors and lives. His unique voice has brought Magical Thinking positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "Burroughs offers himself up as art that illuminates all that is absurd and outrageous - yet he does so lovingly, morphing his work to appear as every vulnerable person's personal read. He reaches into his audience, grabs its attention and then delivers the moral without any hint that that's what he's doing."
