No, your eyes do not deceive you. The man pictured above is indeed the awesome writer Augusten Burroughs. My friend Nate (the dude on the right) and I went to hear A.B. speak at the University of San Francisco (USF) last week. We had no idea what to expect, and Burroughs delivered beyond any expectations we possibly could have had. He told us “you don’t have to have a story, you have to pay attention,” and described himself as “an accidental memoirist.” Nate and I were totally blown away by him, and just wanted to go home and write for hours and hours.
