Millions of listeners have been flat-out astonished, profoundly moved, and massively entertained by the writing of Augusten Burroughs. Now, with A wolf at the table, Augusten returns to his literary roots as one of the most famous memoirists of our time, yet he makes a quantum leap forward into untapped emotional terrain: the radical pendulum swing between love and hate, the unspeakably terrifying relationship between father and son. A wolf at the table is the story of Augusten's relationship with his than the companion volume to Running with scissors--it's a story of stunning father, John Robison, Sr. Told with shocking honesty and penetrating insight, A wolf at the table is more psychological cruelty and the redemptive power of hope.

This book is very dark and sad. He went through a tremendously abusive childhood and luckily was able to survive. I'm sure there are mental scars because of it. Every child should expect to be loved by their father which wasn't the case here.

I'm glad that Augusten is able to put these feelings into words so that he doesn't have to keep them bottled up inside. He is a very creative and descriptive writer.

I am already an Augusten Burroughs fan, but this work moved me in a deeply personal way. We all have our family histories and challenges, and Augusten's voraciously honest account of growing up in the shadow of his father is gut-wrenching and beautiful.
