Sellevision by Augusten Burroughs( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Darkly funny and gleefully mean-spirited, Sellevision explores greed, obsession and third tier celebrity, in the world of a fictional home shopping network. Welcome to the troubled world of Sellevision, America's premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much-loved and handsome (lonely and gay) host of 'Slumber Sunday Sundown' accidentally exposes himself in front of sixty million kids and their parents during a 'Toys for Tots' segment, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max fails to find a job in television, another host, the popular and perky Peggy Jean Smythe is receiving sinister emails about her appearance from a stalker. Popping pills and drinking heavily, she fails to notice that her husband is spending a lot of time with the very young babysitter who lives next door. Then there's Leigh, whose affair with Sellevision boss Howard Toast is going nowhere, until she exposes him on air; and Bebe, Sellevision's star host, who finds Mr. Right through the Internet- if she can just stop her shopping addiction from taking over"--Page 4 of cover

Running with scissors : a memoir by Augusten Burroughs( Book )

59 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead-ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain. Suddenly, at age twelve, Augusten Burroughs found himself living in a dilapidated Victorian in perfect squalor. The doctor's bizarre family, a few patients, and a pedophile living in the backyard shed completed the tableau. Here, there were no rules, there was no school. The Christmas tree stayed up until summer, and Valium was eaten like Pez. And when things got dull, there was always the vintage electroshock therapy machine under the stairs ... Running with Scissors is at turns foul and harrowing, compelling and maniacally funny. But above all, it chronicles an ordinary boy's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.

Look me in the eye : my life with Asperger's by John Elder Robison( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since he was young, John Robison longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits--an inclination to blurt out non-sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother, Augusten Burroughs, in them)--had earned him the label "social deviant." It was not until he was forty that he was diagnosed with a form of autism called Asperger's syndrome. That understanding transformed the way he saw himself--and the world. A born storyteller, Robison has written a moving, darkly funny memoir about a life that has taken him from developing exploding guitars for KISS to building a family of his own. It's a strange, sly, indelible account--sometimes alien yet always deeply human.--Publisher description

You may not know it, but you've met Augusten Burroughs. You've seen him on the street, in bars, on the underground, at restaurants: a twenty-something guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten had twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. At the request (well, it wasn't really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr are dashed by the grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers.

Based on the personal memoirs of Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors is a wickedly funny, brave and moving tale of surviving a most unusual childhood. Augusten's (Joseph Cross) mother (Annette Bening) is a deluded aspiring post with bipolar disorder whose marriage to his dad (Alec Baldwin) is in ruins. Soon, she is seeing a very eccentric therapist named Dr. Finch (Brian Cox), while Augusten is left in the care of Finch's wackly family, including his tightly-wound daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow). Abandoned by his parents and adopted by the Finches, he finds a kindred spirit in youngest daughter Natalie (Even Rachel Wood) and motherly support from Finch's long suffering wife Agnes (Jill Clayburgh). Constantly recording the events of his life in his journals as a way to cope, Augusten finds himself avoiding school, learning about love from an older man (Joseph Fiennes), and making big decisions at the tender age of fifteen

Correndo con le forbici in mano( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Multiple languages and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Augusten Burroughs ha un padre assente e alcolizzato e una madre ossessionata dalla scrittura e dal proprio subconscio creativo. Dopo la loro drammatica separazione, Augusten viene dimenticato e parcheggiato nella casa del dottor Finch, l'originale quanto folle psichiatra della madre. L'uomo, che pratica la scienza della psichiatria come fosse un'alchimia, esercita sui propri pazienti un forte ascendente. Derubata dei beni e della salute, Deirdre Burroughs lascia che il dottor Finch adotti Augusten. Abbandonato in una casa vittoriana tinta di rosa, Augusten si rassegna presto a convivere con la sua nuova famiglia: la signora Finch, madre affettuosa e allampanata che passa le sue giornate davanti ai B-movie horror, Hope, figlia maggiore dei Finch devota al padre e al suo gatto Freud, Natalie, figlia minore col vizio dell'elettroshock e Neil Bookman, figlio adottivo gay col complesso di Edipo. Deciso a sopravvivere all'abbandono dei suoi e alle paranoie quotidiane dei Finch, Augusten attraverserà tutto d'un fiato gli anni '70 e l'adolescenza, approdando a New York e a una vita finalmente normale.
