Lust & Wonder: A Memoir is the ninth book by Augusten Burroughs. It was released on March 29, 2016.
The New York Times said that Burroughs is talented at simultaneously blaming everyone else for his troubles while maintaining an undercurrent of self-awareness that it is actually all his own fault. It said that the book becomes much less entertaining once Burroughs finds peace. 
The Washington Post said the book added little new to the other memoirs previously written by Burroughs, best for readers who care deeply about the Burroughs and not for readers whose feelings for Burroughs are not strongly positive. 
Fort Myers Florida Weekly called the book just as funny and sharp as Burroughs' previous memoirs, albeit without much originality. 
The Concord Monitor said that the book added little insight to Burroughs' previous memoirs, speculating that Burroughs continues to write memoirs for his own amusement rather than for that of his readers.
