Review: Magical Thinking



Magical Thinking: True Stories by Augusten Burroughs

I've never read anything by Burroughs, but he's been "on the list" for a while now, and wow, he's well worth the wait!

These stories are by turns funny, horrifying and "that's too weird to be true". Burroughs is probably tired of comparisons to David Sedaris, but they are inevitable (quirky gay man with quirky short stories that are both funny and weird).

However, I really fell into Burroughs' style, and found myself reading this collection of stories in no time, without "getting tired" of the stories, like you can when you read a short story compendium all at once.

I highly recommend this book, and plan to read Burroughs' other work soon!
