From Publishers Lunch:

A short item in the Boston Globe notes a profile of author Augusten Burroughs in the new issue of Vanity Fair by Buzz Bissinger, out next week.

"I don't know how [Burroughs] lives with himself," Bissinger says. "Running With Scissors contains little strands of fact that were wildly embellished, and if you take those away, you don't have much of a book."

Of the Turcotte family, which is suing Burroughs, Bissinger says: "They took him in and did their best, and he turned around and wrote about them in the most vile way possible. It's totally gratuitous."
