I nominated this book for my book club after seeing it won the Thurber. It does not disappoint. Lots of people throw around the phrase "laugh out loud funny," but this book truly merits it. Outlandish, yet identifiable. Heartwarming and cringeworthy ...more

“Most women who struggle with their weight as I do hate to have their picture taken. It wouldn’t be so bad if there was physically a means of sucking in one’s neck, but as yet, I haven’t figured out how to do this.”
A.K. Turner, Mommy Had a Little Flask

“I fiercely harbor the hunch that you can sit on concrete, smoke a pack of cigarettes, get liquored up, and still someday be a fantastic parent.”
A.K. Turner, This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store

“Specifically, we longed for a hiatus from Dora and Diego, not simply because these animated little cousins insist on yelling everything that comes out of their mouths, but also because Dora and Diego had completely failed in teaching our children Spanish. They now think that maps can talk and believe monkeys wear boots, but their Spanish skills are still as limited as my own. I’d been hoping to cultivate little translators, but no such luck.”
A.K. Turner, Mommy Had a Little Flask
