A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs

A real life memoir and as it turns out a prequel to the author's more famous book (Running with Scissors). Dark and haunting. The author re-creates his childhood growing with a sociopathic and cruel father and his mentally unstable mother. Compelling reading.

F is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton

I will admit to the fact that the majority of my reading during the spring of 2023 has been done to escape from the drama and trauma in my personal life and as a result much of my reading has been filtered through a heavy fog.

I feel I should read it again.
