Nope – not talking about bridal shows or graduation dresses but
author Jamie Brickhouse’s Mama’s name for those days when she didn’t
get out of her nightgown or put on her face. As a mostly functioning alcoholic in
a high profile job, Brickhouse takes an increasing number of gown days as he sinks
into a dangerous, self-destructive lifestyle of drinking, drugs and unprotected sex.
His mother – a larger than life – Texan affectionately know as Mama Jean rescues
her beloved almost 40 year old boy and sets him on the right path. Coming from
St. Martin’s Press in May this is a memoir full of humour, outrageous antics and
ultimately unconditional love.
