A Wolf at the Table, Paperback Book

Description

From the author: 'My father doesn't feature much in "Running with Scissors". And one of the reasons for this is because he didn't feature much in my life.

But there's another reason, too: Our relationship was so complicated, so dark, so confusing and so big, that to tell the story would require a book.

So finally, upon the death of my father in 2005, I decided to tell the story I have been most afraid yet most compelled to tell.' This prequel to international hit "Running With Scissors" tells the story of Augusten's relationship with his tormented father: a man who sent his wife mad and saw his other son run away from home, prior to Augusten going into foster care.

It is harrowing, insightful and amusing by turns.
