Another welcome returning visitor is Augusten Burroughs, a writer who has been called "deliciously perverse," "enduringly neurotic," and, most frequently, "hilarious." His new book, Possible Side Effects (St. Martin's), continues in the vein of its predecessors Running with Scissors, Dry, and Magical Thinking. Read it and you'll know why Entertainment Weekly named him one of the 15 funniest Americans. "Burroughs has superb comic sensibility, throwing off sparkling riffs on everyday humiliations in a voice that's alternatively caustic and warm, bitchy and self-deprecating...no one is funnier or more perceptive." - Publishers Weekly. Tickets ($5) are available at Elliott Bay and at the door. Town Hall is located at 1119 Eighth Avenue, 8th & Seneca (entry downstairs on Seneca). For more information (and tickets), please call Elliott Bay at (206) 624-6600.
