A WOLF AT THE TABLE : A MEMOIR OF MY FATHER
by Augusten Burroughs
All he ever wanted from his father was love, attention, concern and admiration. Instead, he was pushed away, ignored, not acknowledged.
In A Wolf at the Table Augusten Burroughs writes about the harrowing relationship he had with his sociopathic father. The mood swings, the rage that would erupt, the horrible fights between his parents, the psychological cruelty, threw the family into a perpetual state of terror.
The memoir is told with brutal honesty. Nothing is held back.
Augusten's story is very intense and you are swept in, emotionally.
Recommended, but cautiously.
