Witch. The latest memoir by Augusten Burroughs is titled, Toil and Trouble. His being a witch is one of the less strange aspects of this finely written and witty book. As with earlier books, he scrapes pieces of his life to reveal the power of love in our lives and the many ways in which we are all powerless. This memoir focuses on domestic life and his move to the country to an old house. He finds grist to mill with his terrific descriptive language in telling readers about hired workers, neighbors, dogs, storms, memories, storms, jewelry, diet and more.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
