I guess it's 'entertainment' if you assume that serious art is only produced in Americ

Augusten Burroughs? It took me a while before I reopened the book I said to myself there must be something in here This was shortlisted in 2005 Booker Prize and a recent addition to the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die So there must be something hereI am glad I persevered This is a strangely beautiful bookIt's about the effect of mothers to their children All mothers are human being and they are different from each other There are two types of mothers here the one who gives everything away and the one who keeps everything to herself In the center of these mothers is the Melrose family The father Patrick is the son of the mother who gives everything away This mother is e
