Yes, I read that and thought it was so good, but also very uncomfortable reading in a way in some places. Have you read the second book My Friend Leonard? It's really good too.A Million Little Pieces by James Frey for me, about a man and his stint in rehab to put his life back together. Couldn't put it down.
A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen was also really touching. Especially to a cat lover like myself!
