From the author of the runaway New York Times bestseller RUNNING WITH SCISSORS comes its sequel, a hilarious, dark and twisted memoir of young adulthood.

DRY is his hilarious and moving account of coming off the booze and attempting to live his drunken life sober. It's also a story of love, loss and Starbucks as a higher power.
