Product Details


“[The Burn Journals] describes a particular kind of youthful male desolation better than it has ever been described before, by anyone.”  -Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon“A fascinating account of the mending of a body and mind, told with the simple and honest sensibility of someone too young to have endured so much.” —Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha"Runyon has, perhaps, written the defining book of a new genre, one that gazes…unflinchingly at boys on the emotional edge ." –Booklist (starred review)"A taut, chilling account of the author’s attempt to commit suicide…a must-read for teenagers struggling with self-doubt."-The Denver Post“An excruciating, brilliant book…WOW.” —A.M. Homes, author of Things You Should Know
