Featuring: Jowita Bydlowska, Helen Humphreys, Priscila Uppal, and Alison Wearing The realities of alternative parenting and unconventional upbringings are on display as these memoirists confess the truth behind remarkable stories. Taking the reader through the binges and the blackouts, the self-deception and the humiliations,Drunk Mom is Jowita Bydlowska’s memoir of her relapse into addiction while dealing with motherhood and rehab. Projection: Encounters with my Runaway Mother is Priscila Uppal’s brutally honest memoir about an unusual mother-daughter relationship, yet offers comfort to those facing their own turbulent and unresolved family dynamics. Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter moves from Alison Wearing’s carefree childhood to the moment she learned, at age twelve, that her family was a tad more complex than she had thought.
