304 páginas

 

Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton ) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a strinking resemblance to Santa Claus . So at the age of twelve , Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor's bizzare family , and befriending a pedophile whi resided in the backyard shed . The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of , and the Christmas tree stayed up all year-round , where Valium was consumed like candy , and if things got dull , an electroshock therapy machine could provide entertainment . The funny , harrowing , and bestselling account of an ordinary boy 's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances .
