I received quite a few books for Christmas, which makes sense since that is mainly what I asked for. I’ve started reading Running with Scissors. It’s a book about a young boy growing up in a very unusual environment.
I’ll warn you that this book is not easy to read. If you are homophobic, do not like reading about feces, or just plain believe June and Ward Clever are the norm of family life, you should not read this book. You find yourself nervously laughing just to keep from getting too upset at the storyline. Basically, Augusten is left to grow up in his mother’s psychiatrists home. Needless to say, a household where “Bible Dips” are used instead of Magic 8 Balls can give a person a distorted view of life.
