    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.

    Any additional comments?

    Have read these Ian Frazier pieces for years in the New Yorker and always found them laugh out loud funny, but it may be that this narrative style is really best in print (at least for me). Not sure it's anything do to with C. Nixon (also love her), just might be that the CM is better heard with one's eyes and not ears!

    Dupont University: the Olympian halls of learning housing the cream of America's youth, the roseate Gothic spires and manicured lawns suffused with tradition....Or so it appears to beautiful, brilliant Charlotte Simmons, a sheltered freshman from North Carolina, who has come here on full scholarship. But Charlotte soon learns, to her mounting dismay, that for the upper-crust coeds of Dupont, sex, Cool, and kegs trump academic achievement every time.

    Funny witty literary and licentious. A one of Wolfes best and certainly one of he best of its time describing modern college life. Ignore all he bad reviews of the book and glory in a truly great narration. You won't regret a moment of its 30 hours!
