It was a special occasion: a party celebrating the birth of her first child. It also marked Bydlowskas immediate, full-blown return to crippling alcoholism.In the gritty and sometimes grimly comic tradition of the bestselling memoirs Lit by Mary Karr and Smashed by Koren Zailckas, Drunk Mom is Bydlowskas account of the ways substance abuse took control of her life- the binges and blackouts, the humiliations, the extraordinary risk-taking- as well as her fight toward recovery as a young mother. This courageous memoir brilliantly shines a light on the twisted logic of an addicted mind and the powerful, transformative love of ones child. Ultimately it gives hope, especially to those struggling in the same way.
