Dry, Augusten Burroughs

Self-indulgent crap. Oh brilliant adman alcoholic who finally discovers what he's been looking for in crack! Oh uneducated hard-lived wunderkind! Nonfiction (hmm...with the JT Leroy and James Frey craptacular revelations lately, I wonder...) story about checking into rehab, loving AA, then deciding AA is boring bullshit. I kept reading simply to see when Burroughs fell off the wagon. Tries to be gay-funny like Sedaris but falls way short. Summation: an easy and fast read, very graphic, but tiresome.
