Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hilarious—and delightfully profane—novel about the daily frustrations of family life

Based on his widely read columns for The New Yorker, Ian Fraziers uproarious first novel, The Cursing Mommys Book of Days, centers on a profoundly memorable character, sprung from an impressively fertile imagination. Structured as a daybook of sorts, the book follows the Cursing Mommy—beleaguered wife of Larry and mother of two young boys—as she offers tips on how to do various tasks around the home, only to end up on the ground, cursing, surrounded by broken glass. Her voice is somewhere between Phyllis Dillers and Sylvia Plaths: a hilariously desperate housewife with a taste for swearing and large glasses of red wine, who speaks to the frustrations of everyday life.

In The Cursing Mommys Book of Days, Frazier colors his fiction with grace and aplomb, as well as an extra helping of his trademark wicked wit. The Cursing Mommys failures and weaknesses are our own—and Frazier gives them a loving, satirical spin that is uniquely his own.
