Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling author Augusten Burroughs, who will sign and discuss his memoir, “Lust & Wonder”!

Picking up where “Dry” left off, Augusten Burroughs, with his signature wit, candor, and unique observations, chronicles the development and demise of three major relationships: Mitch, a famous author Augusten dates fresh out of rehab; Dennis, his life and business partner of ten years; and Christopher, his literary agent and now husband. Along the way, he describes the jubilation of selling his first novel, experimenting with Adderall, and nearly going bankrupt buying precious stones on the internet. Burroughs shows us his heart in “Lust & Wonder,” and examines what it means to be in love, what it means to be in lust, and what it means to be figuring it all out.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Lust & Wonder” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
