Fortunately, Ian Frazier seems to lack common sense. This second collection is not as good as his first, ”Dating Your Mom,” but that was one of the best.

Based on his widely read columns for The New Yorker , Ian Frazier’s uproarious first novel, The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days , centers on a profoundly memorable character, sprung from an impressively fertile imagination. Her voice is somewhere between Phyllis Diller’s and Sylvia Plath’s: a hilariously desperate housewife with a taste for swearing and large glasses of red wine, who speaks to the frustrations of everyday life.

Frazier has demonstrated an astonishing ability to operate with ease in a variety of registers: from On the Rez , an investigation into the lives of modern day Oglala Sioux written with a mix of humor, compassion, and imagination, to Dating Your Mom , a sidesplitting collection of humorous essays that imagines, among other things, how and why you might begin a romance with your mother. Here, Frazier tackles another genre with his usual grace and aplomb, as well as an extra helping of his trademark wicked wit.

Ideally, this daybook would have started on Saturday morning, January 1, but Larry and I had to be in Encino. We flew back on the second, and on the third I drove to the assisted living to see my fucking father. Just thinking about that weekend and then the trip to the goddamn horrible assisted living makes me want to put that nonsense far, far behind. I will clear my head, get a refill on my coffee, and go back to the kitchen table where I began.

We must always remember to be grateful for what we have. On this winter morning, with the temperature in the twenties and snow covering the ground outside, I am grateful just to be sitting here sheltered and indoors. I will keep my hopes and prayers positive on this first day fourth, technically, as I already explained of our journey year. The children had such fun in the snow yesterday.
