    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!
