A Wolf at the Table

After reading "Running with Scissors" I've since wanted to read everything by Augusten Burroughs. I love that he reads his own books on audio because generally that is how I read, on audio. I'm currently reading "A Wolf at the Table" his newest book about his father. It's pretty interesting seeing his story from another perspective. In Running with Scissors he focused more on his crazy mother it seemed to me, and you really didn't see the father as a bad guy, just some guy along for the ride with his crazy mother. But then you see later just how crazy his father really was too. Anyone else reading this currently as well?

I had read this a few months ago, it was pretty good. It was not as good as running with scissors though. It is so hard to believe that his father would do stuff like calling him to say he was on his way to kill him but really was tricking him so he could call the police and turns out he was at his apartment. I feel really bad for Augustin. Even though it was not as good as RWS, I could not put the book down and finished it within a few days (much like I had done with running with scissors).
