Running With Scissors

  • 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.

    This is the story of a 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.

    It's a funny, harrowing and bestselling account of an ordinary boy's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.
