Abstract:

"My mother was always committing suicide. She started out young, in an amateur capacity. But it didn't take long for Mama to work out how to make psychiatrists take notice, and to get the respect reserved for the most serious cases. Written with gritty humour in the form of a confession, Mama's Boy recounts the family drama of a young man who sets out in search of his mother after a childhood spent shuffling from one foster home to another. A bizarre character with a skewed view of the world, he leads the reader on a quest that is both tender and violent."--
