Title: Lust and Wonder: A Memoir

Author: Augusten Burroughs

Comment: “In chronicling the development and demise of the different relationships he’s had while living in New York, Augusten Burroughs examines what it means to be in love and what it means to be figuring it all out. With Augusten’s own unabashed way of detailing both the horrific and the humorous, Lust and Wonder is an intimate and honest memoir.”
