From the #1 bestselling author of Running with Scissors and Dry—a contagiously funny, heartwarming, shocking, twisted, and absolutely magical collection. True stories that give voice to the thoughts we all have but dare not mention. It begins with a Tang Instant Breakfast Drink television commercial when Augusten was seven. Then there is the contest of wills with the deranged cleaning lady. The execution of a rodent carried out with military precision and utter horror. Telemarketing revenge. Dating an undertaker and much more. A collection of true stories that are universal in their appeal yet unabashedly intimate and very funny.

I loved Augusten Burroughs' "Magical Thinking". A group of short essays jumping in time from childhood to recent adult activities, it has a similar feel to Rikki Lee Travolta's "My Fractured Life" (although with the huge difference that "My Fractured Life" is fiction and "Magical Thinking" is a memoir). Just like "My Fractured Life", in "Magical Thinking" the writing was crisp yet naturally meandering - like a conversation. Some of the stories are a bit sexually graphic so it is not for the easily offended, but I thoughly enjoyed the honesty. Five stars!

i love him as a writer. my favorite story in this book was the one with the maid. WEIRD! he is so entertaining. i just can not wait for his next book to come out in '06.

Totally disappointed! Did not like it at all. Not interesting subject matter and he didn't make any sense to write about such nonsense. Didn't finish it and I won't be buying any others by him. You have to be kidding to think people would be interested. I will give it one star for spelling and penmanship!

Never have I felt more connected to an author in a uncomfortable world as I do with Augusten Burroughs. A fresh prospective and hard hitting one-liners that make you say 'did I just read that correctly'. Deals and tells of raw situations with a sophisicated humor. This is a must read to everyone. This collection of stories captures what life is all about and how you cannot take ANYTHING too seriously. Please give it a try!

i love all of Augusten Burrough's work and this is my favorite,besides running with scissors, i just could not put this book down, it is very well done, a must read.

Sometimes this book is uncomfortable to read other times it's laugh out loud funny. Burrough's writes honestly and from the heart about things that most people find politically incorrect. Good for him. I loved the story about the maid, but my favorite part in the book is when he finds his soul mate. Beautiful!

I had read a few of "VARMENTS''books and yes I am hooked!! I couldn't decide which would be my next because I didn't know in order to"get it"I didn't know if I needed to read the prior book.So I ended up looking them all up so I could read the reviews and chose them in chronical order.Well I passed up Sellivision due to the reviews.CRAZY CRAZY to put so much time in picking out a fricking book knowing that eventually l will read all of them anyway!! Doing all of this kinda shows me why I'm attracted to Aug.in the first place-takes one to know one!!I'll be in touch with my real review when I get done.I know you all just can't wait!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Granny B.

i found myself laughing and gasping through the majority of this book i have a very vulgar and dry sense of humor so its refreshing to read from an author who does as well Its quite possible this book might offend you but i say grow a pair and get over it and enjoy the f**ked up situations in everyday life with a hardy laugh I LOVE YOU AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS
