This book was quite the interesting read! Augusten Burroughs is my favorite author but I had never read his first novel (this one). A few months ago I had the opportunity to read Augusten's new memoir, Lust & Wonder, whose time period takes place while he was writing Sellevision. Knowing the background behind it made it more meaningful to me. I would definitely suggest reading at least one of his other books or this one might not seem as funny as it could be.
If you are interested, check out the book here.
