Very good, though I am starting to find it sad that so many authors I like had such heartbreaking things happen to them. I suppose it makes for good reading, and that its good that they are able to overcome their problems and do well now, but it sill seems wrong somehow that we enjoy seeing they pain they were in.

[SPOILER ALERT!] I liked this book a lot. I read Running With Scissors first, then this one. This one made me cry -- when he went to the jeweler's to pick up the pig head. Like Scissors, it's amazing that he could make such a terrible period of his life seem so humorous. I'm glad he's well now.
