In 2002, Augusten Burroughs started writing books and hasn't looked back, or rather, that's all he does.
Best-known for the memoir Running with Scissors, in which he recalls his teen years growing up as a ward of his mother's psychiatrist, Burroughs has also penned the autobiographical A Wolf at the Table, Possible Side Effects, Magical Thinking and Dry.
In his most recent book, This is How: Surviving what You Think You Can't, he shares insights into what his life experiences have taught him.
