Memoirist Augusten Burroughs is committed to telling his story with brutal honesty — even if it means cringing about things he's done in the past.
For many who have experience abuse and loss, Burroughs' books are a source of catharsis, yet his own ideas about healing are complex. "The reality is that there are some things that you don't heal" he tells Shad.
