Fresh off the boat

a wolf at the tableGather ’round gather ’round, do I have a deal for you. Look at these pristine, smart-looking copies of A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs. Now how much would pay for the hardcover of this little gem? $50? Ha! $45? No way! $24 .95? No chance!

How about $8.99!!

Our dear colleague, Robert, had this to say:

This is not the sometimes glib, chuckle-a-minute book we are used to from Mr. Burroughs (and I say this as someone who loves and admires his work). Wolf is more stark, harsher, written with a fevered intensity and immediacy that propels the book with the strength and speed of a bullet train. Burroughs was already a wonderful writer, with this tale of a boy longing for his father’s love, he becomes an artist. Robert highly recommends this memoir.

There you go.
