So your parents seperate and neither of them are capable of taking care of you. So what does your unstable mother do? She lets her psychiatrist become your legal gaurdian. Sound sane? No, but not much in Augusten Burroughs life sounds sane either. From living with the Finch clan in their broken down victorian home to discovering your sexuality with their grown "adopted" son Bookman. Burroughs shares with the reader a harrowing time in his life and shows us you can find humor in any situation. From bible dips to reading signs in one's bowel movements. If he can turn out somewhat adjusted then there's hope for us all.... maybe.
