THINK YOUR CHILDHOOD WAS WEIRD?

ENTER THIS TWELVE-YEAR-OLD’S WACKY WORLD…

RUNNING WITH SCISSORS is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus. So 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. The funny, harrowing, and bestselling account of an ordinary boy’s survival under the most extraordinary circumstances…

“Promotes visceral responses (of laughter, wincing, retching) on nearly every page…funny and rich with child’s-eye details of adults who have gone off the rails.”
