I've read "A million little pieces" and thought it was a good read, but read it after the revelations came to light, so I read it as a novel not as a biography. I guess I'm not familiar with the back-story with Augusten. His life and stories are definitely colorful. There are some parts of "Dry" that send chills down my spin, almost like we've lived a parallel life. His writing will in one paragraph make me laugh out loud and in the next make me sob out loud.
