From St. Martin’s Press and the author of ‘Dry‘, ‘Running With Scissors‘, ‘Wolf at the Table‘ and ‘Magical Thinking‘ comes, “You Better Not Cry.” In this memoir Augusten Burroughs illustrates how Christmas brings out the best and worst in people (you will see yourself between the pages), and he does so in his own, inimitably caustic yet humorous style.
If you are already familiar with Augusten Burrough’s stories, then you know this read will be hilariously reverent and irreverent at once, as well as nostalgic, poignant, and spellbinding. Â For a taste of Burrough’s wit and humor, below is an excerpt from: You’d Better Not Cry.
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. But for me, each Christmas has been worse than the one before. Perhaps this is punishment for getting Jesus and Santa all mixed up in my head as a kid. Or maybe, waking up hungover at the Waldorf Astoria next to a naked, old, fat French Santa just isn’t as big a deal as I think. The funny thing is, I still love Christmas. I just sometimes wish there wasn’t so much coal dust.
