Críticas:

" I just finished reading the most amazing book. Running with Scissors is hilarious, freaky-deaky, berserk, controlled, transcendent, touching, affectionate, vengeful, all-embracing....It makes a good run at blowing every other [memoir] out of the water." -- Carolyn See, "The Washington Post"
" Funny and rich with child's eye details of adults who have gone off the rails." -- "The New York Times Book Review"
" It is as funny as it is twisted." -- "GQ"
" A hilarious and horrifying memoir." -- "Los Angeles Times"
" Harrowing and hilarious. I haven't laughed this much since David Sedaris's last book." -- Haven Kimmel, author of "A Girl Named Zippy"
" "Running with Scissors" is a cut above...compelling...the book celebrates Burroughs' resilient, upbeat spirit, which helps him surmount one of the weirder childhoods on record." -- "USA Today"
" The anecdotes can be so flippant, and so insanely funny (quite literally), that the effect is that of a William Burroughs situation comedy." -- "The New York Times"
" Burroughs defies the ' woe is me' stigma of modern memoir with a raucous recounting of his loony teenage years." -- "Entertainment Weekly"
" I was reminded of Roald Dahl's "Boy "and "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," Augusten Burroughs has produced a memoir that's funny and sharp but also humane, as charming as it is revealing." -- Kurt Andersen, author of "Turn of the Century"
" A memoir that is both horrifying and mordantlyfunny." -- "San Francisco Chronicle"
" Burroughs has memorialized his bizarre childhood showing off a dark wit that often rivals that 0of David Sedaris-- while telling a true story that would make even Sedaris cringe." -- "New York Magazine"
" Burroughs tempers the pathos with sharp riotous humor... Edgier, but reminiscent of Dave Eggers' "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," this is a survival story readers won't forget." -- "Booklist"
