The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days


Fun Find–  Now available on audio The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days by Ian Frazier and is read by Cynthia Nixon.  Up front let me just say, if you are not a ‘cursing mommy’ then this audio version of the book is probably not for you.  However, if you are the parent who lets their emotions ride high with curse words, like I can be, then this might be a fun listening experience for you.  Just not around the already somewhat tainted kids.

The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days: A Novel is based on Frazier’s award-winning New York Times column and is read with wit and grace by Nixon.  She is spot on as Cursing Mommy.  I love that the reader is supposed to be Cursing Mommy’s blog reader. It  is a wonderful way to listen to the book imagining Cursing Mommy sitting at her kitchen table, coffee cup nearby, typing up a blog post while her sons ages 12 and 8 turn her world upside down.  Her husband Larry has his own work-related issues that bring up some funny moments and as a whole the book is a great piece of satirical work.
