    Story
    (24)

    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.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Ian Frazier and/or Cynthia Nixon?

    I wouldn't buy another Ian Frazier book unless at a bargain price. Cynthia Nixon did a great job.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The situations were unique, but the book was to me a series of side-stories that didn't really come together satisfactorily. This reads like a rough draft instead of a thoughtfully rewritten whole.


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

    The mommy-very sympathetic on a lot of occasions but thoroughly self-absorbed.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book after hearing Mr. Frazier read an excerpt from the book on Jimmy Fallon-that bit was hilarious. But the hate references against the Bush and Reagan administrations were soon overdone and tired. None of the characters were fully believable or relateable.
