LUST & WONDER by Augusten Burroughs

In chronicling the development and demise of the different relationships he's had while living in New York, Augusten Burroughs examines what it means to be in love, what it means to be in lust, and what it means to be figuring it all out. With Augusten’s unique and singular observations and his own unabashed way of detailing both the horrific and the humorous, LUST & WONDER is an intimate and honest memoir that his legions of fans have been waiting for. This new book takes up where bestseller DRY (arguably his most beloved book) left off.

Augusten Burroughs is an acclaimed memoirist and #1 bestseller, and is one of the top selling authors for St. Martin’s Press, with more than 4 million copies of his books sold! We are thrilled to have another book on our list, and we will publish in hardcover March 29, 2016. I’ve attached the terrific jacket and selected quotes below.

Selected quotes on Augusten’s previous works:

"All of the wisdom he dispenses in his new book-delivered with the dark, acidic humor we've come to expect-is certainly well-earned." -The Boston Globe on This is How

"Dry is more than a heartbreaking tale; it's a heroic one. As with its predecessor, we finish the book amazed not only that Burroughs can write so brilliantly, but that he's even alive." -People on Dry

"It makes a good run at blowing every other [memoir] out of the water." -Carolyn See, The Washington Post on Running with Scissors

"Funny and rich with child's eye details of adults who have gone off the rails." -The New York Times Book Review on Running with Scissors
