    Based on his widely read columns for The New Yorker, Ian Frazier’s uproarious first novel, The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days, centers on a profoundly memorable character, sprung from an impressively fertile imagination. Structured as a daybook of sorts, with the Cursing Mommy - beleaguered wife of Larry and mother of two boys, twelve and nine - trying (more or less) valiantly to offer tips on how to do various tasks around the home, only to end up on the ground, cursing, surrounded by broken glass.

    Veronica says: "Laughed 'till I cried."
    "Very Funny, got me cursing!"

    Story
    What did you like best about The Cursing Mommy's Book of Days? What did you like least?

    Cynthia Nixon's performance is terrific. She is very funny. CM gets herself into a lot of ridiculous situations with packing tape, wire hangers, etc., and oddly, it is easy to relate.I also liked all of the references to the Bush administration, global warming, school privatization and health insurance. Just out there enough to be funny. It did take me a little while to get into the book, though. I didn't get it at first. Once I figured out the point of view, I kept going.


    Would you recommend The Cursing Mommy's Book of Days to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would definitely recommend Cursing Mommy, because it is funny!


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Nixon – was your favorite?

    Mommy herself. Cynthia Nixon gives her just the right edge.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, but I think it would be tough to translate to the screen, as so much of it is interior monologue.


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself quoting lines from the book throughout the day. Like, when I was on hold with the @#$% health insurance company. Oh, and maybe this is self evident, but if you are offended by cursing, you won't like this book.
