Running with Scissors is the true story of Augustus Burroughs: A boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away so that he would be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus. Therefore, at the age of twelve, Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor's bizarre family, and befriending a pedophile who resided in the backyard shed.
The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, and the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment. Although it is often shocking to read about his many experiences, this book will often catch you laughing with its funny, yet harrowing events. Having been made into a movie, you may be interested to read this bestselling account of an ordinary boy's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.
