Three Things I Learned from Augustyn Burrough’s Dry

Picador, $14 ISBN 0-312-42379-9

  1. Burrough’s misadventures in drinking and trying to hold a job are cringeworthy; I found myself breathing a sigh of relief when he went off to rehab.

  2. His best friend is named “Pighead” and he never explains the moniker.

  3. This book made me so moody (Is he going to relapse?!?) that my husband was glad when I was finished with it.

Have you read this? Let me know what you thought in the comments below.
