review Toil Trouble Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Ld remember he knew things he shouldn't have known He manifested things that shouldn't have come to pass And he told exactly no one about this save one person his mother His mother reassured him that it was all perfectly normal that he was descended from a long line of witches going back to the days of the early American colonies And that this family tree was filled with witches It was a bond that he and his mother shared until the day she left him in the care of her psychiatrist to be raised in his family but that's a whole other story. 35 StarsMy love of biographies drew me to this offering from Augusten Burroughs not the name he was born with but one he fashioned for himself He is a gay writer who formerly worked in marketing who has been married to his literary agent Christopher for a couple of decades Oh and he s a witch There are actually a lot of witches in his family primarily his mother and grandmother and his Uncle Mercer who constantly fights against the notion of being one As the book begins Augusten relates the story of being a pre teen child riding along on his school bus and having a clear sudden premonition that something bad happened to his grandmother He jolted from the bus on a tear to ask his mother about it It was then that she had the heart to heart about Augusten s gift and the legacy of it running in the family Augusten clarifies the realities of what a witch can do and how the gift actually operates in contrast to what one might surmise from a campy witch movie He had a rough time during his childhood being treated like an outcast He had a penchant for dressing a lot differently than the other kids in perhaps what would be considered a garishflamboyant fashion He also didn t get very far in school but through sheer talent and gumption became successful in the marketing field He also literally willed himself to succeed in writing and you could call it a kind of magic that he did My favorite part of the book was when he convinced his husband to move from New York City where Christopher had an apartment for decades to an old secluded house in Connecticut with lots of land around it This new environment was fodder for many interesting stories involving an eccentric neighbor a huge ancient maple tree supernatural events with paintings etc One unfortunate faux pas I encountered were some political slams something that s been cropping up in a lot of autobiographies lately Congratulations on isolating half of your audience Otherwise the writing uality was very good and inflected with humorThank you to the publisher St Martin s Press for providing an advance reader copy via NetGalley

review Toil Trouble Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB After that Augusten was on his own On his own to navigate the world of this tricky power; on his own to either use or misuse this giftFrom the hilarious to the terrifying Toil Trouble is a chronicle of one man's journey to understand himself to reconcile the powers he can wield with things with which he is helpless There are very few things that are coincidences as you will learn in Toil Trouble Ghosts are real trees can want to kill you beavers are the spawn of Satan houses are alive and in the end love is the most powerful magic of a. So last night I had a dream i was eating a Twix bar today I was at the grocery store checking out and holy cow would you believe it there was the very same Twix bar from my dream So I must be a witchThis book is a mash up of different predictions and weak stories trying so desperately to make himself believe hes different for a reason or has some greater purpose I give this hot mess 0 stars and would demand a refund except I was unfortunate enough to be picked as a give away winner

review Toil Trouble Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB From the number one New York Times bestselling author comes another stunning memoir that is tender touchingand just a little spooky Here’s a partial list of things I don’t believe in God The Devil Heaven Hell Bigfoot Ancient Aliens Past lives Life after death Vampires Zombies Reiki Homeopathy Rolfing Reflexology Note that 'witches' and 'witchcraft' are absent from this list The thing is I wouldn’t believe in them and I would privately ridicule any idiot who did except for one thing I am a witchFor as long as Augusten Burroughs cou.
