Published 2003 by Picador Press, Dry is the follow-up memoir to Burroughs' wildly popular work, Running With Scissors. Many thought this work had more depth than Scissors as it deals with alcoholism and it's stunting effects on personal development. The author only realizes when it's too late that the loving relationship he's been looking for has been in right in front of him for years. Burroughs struggles with his professional life, his social life and refuses to admit the pain in his inner-life. As a result he has 300 empty scotch bottles on the floor of his chi-chi New York apartment. You know what they say, go big or go home.
