Margaret Robison's new memoir takes its place with those of her two sons: Augusten Burroughs (Running With Scissors) and John Elder Robison (Look Me in the Eye). Robison's memories, like those of her sons, are indelibly vivid. A talented poet and teacher, she writes movingly of her growing up in a troubled southern Georgia small town community; marrying a talented man who became increasingly alcoholic and abusive; and her own collapse into deep mental illness. Readers who followed the legal actions and controversies following Running With Scissors will benefit from Robison's detailed personal account of her family's complicated relationship with therapist Dr. Rodolph Turcotte. Another part of the puzzle.
