  • Great stories

    By Littleleobre
    I own all of his books and enjoy them VERY much. They make me laugh out loud in public and people look at me like I'm crazy.
  • I love augusten

    When i find myself comparing peope in my life to characters in Augusten's books, i know i 'm hooked. Thank you, especially, for "dead". My own father is a total opposite, but the subtle pronounciation of his moniker fits perfectly on occasion. Keep writing. I appreciate you. Andy anderson - By Request.
  • An entertaining, quick read.

    If you've got an hour or so to kill this is well worth a read. I enjoyed his story "Debby's Requirements" most of all. I'll be seeking out more of his work. If you like quirky stories, I also suggest you check out "Dogwalker" by Arthur Bradford.
