Addiction is not funny. And recovery is not entertaining. Unless,
that is, these subjects are in the hands of Augusten Burroughs.
Then, it is not merely unexpectedly funny and entertaining but
appropriately poignant and touching as well. In DRY, the follow-up
to his bestselling memoir RUNNING WITH SCISSORS, Burroughs is all
grown up and working in the cutthroat world of advertising. To cope
with his high stress and demanding career, not to mention the
issues and trauma surrounding his childhood, Burroughs drinks. And
drinks. And drinks. In order to keep his job, Burroughs checks
himself into a 30-day rehabilitation program.
