“Drunk Mom is a stunning, harrowing read. Why harrowing? Not just because of the dramatic story, of a new mother at the edge of her tether. And not only because of Jowita Bydlowska’s skill as a writer, and the crisp, original way she tells it. What’s most harrowing about Drunk Mom is that you can’t stop reading it—this, the dark, now-told tale that lurks in the shadow of every seemingly normal family.” – Ian Brown, author of The Boy in the Moon
“Fearless and troubling, and so very humane. Bydlowska’s book explodes the cutesy momoir genre. You’ll read it in one sitting.” – Katrina Onstad, author of Everybody Has Everything
“A brave, brilliant and scathing self-portrait, full of energy and insight. If Frida Kahlo had been a writer, she might have been compared to Jowita Bydlowska”
– Patricia Pearson, author of A Brief History of Anxiety – Yours and Mine.
