Reviews

"Laughter on the road to sobriety. Mr. Burroughs remains adept at mixing comedy and calamity." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times"Beneath the quick-flowing, funny-sad surface of Burroughs' prose lurks considerable complexity: wherever he goes, whatever he's doing, you can feel how badly he wants to drink-as well as the sadness from which that desire comes and the courage it takes to make the sadness so funny, all at the same time. If anything, Dry is even more compelling than Burroughs' first outing." --Lev Grossman, Time"More than a heartbreaking tale, it's a heroic one. As with its predecessor, we finish the book amazed not only that Burroughs can write so brilliantly, but that he's even alive." --People"A wrenching, edifying journey . . . with the added benefit of being really entertaining." --The New York Times Book Review"A deeper book than Scissors, revealing Burroughs to be a more accomplished writer, creating scenes of real power." --Deirdre Donahue, USA Today"Dry will make readers glad to have Augusten Burroughs in the world, and eager for more." --O Magazine"Augusten Burroughs is a wickedly good writer.... Dry is a great read. Grade: A." --Chicago Sun-Times"I haven't read anything this sharp, hip, or honest in my life. Count me as a lifelong fan of this courageous writer." --Elle
