Burroughs, Not Reading

2004_11_03augusten.jpgAugusten Burroughs, former adman with credit card debts, and present essayist, speaks at Innis Town Hall at 8pm, as part of This Is Not a Reading Series. Burroughs is frequently compared to that other gay essayist, David Sedaris, but isn’t bothered by the comparison. You can listen to clips from his latest, Magical Thinking, on his site.
Torontoist is keen on any literature that involves TANG, a beverage on which Burroughs has been known to pontificate. Tanglit anyone?
