Study Up For 'Think': Unconventional Soul Repair With Augusten Burroughs
Is there a way to survive every ailment, setback or heartbreak known to man? Bestselling author Augusten Burroughs disavows personal affirmations and optimism-by-default sold by many therapists in This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike. He joins us on 'Think' at 1 p.m.
Many might be hesitant to consult the author of neurotic memoir Running With Scissors in times of personal crisis. But anyone who's read that book knows Burroughs survived a ghastly childhood and addiction. Those trials led him to treatment that didn't work, and he explains the conventions that didn't help him in This Is How. Read an excerpt via NPR.
Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1. You can stream the show at kera.org.
