Jowita Bydlowska has crafted a heart-wrenching, up close, and personal portrait of the ugliness and helplessness of addiction. I related so closely to her struggles and self-loathing... why, I do not know. Maybe because her book reflects so vividly on the human condition and all its frailties and inconsistencies. Perhaps one doesn't need to be in the personal throes of addiction to still respect it and it's curiosities.
I am upset by negative reviews of Drunk Mom because I can't understand how anyone could read this book and not feel compassion for and celebrate the raw difficult truthfulness that Jowita successfully captured and shared with us. The book is not only a beautiful and bravely written memoire, but also a sober cautionary tale of how easy it is to sink. Thank you, Jowita, for your book.
