    One Reply to “The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom & Party Girl”

    1. Okay, I'm the author of this book, but I have to say that I enjoyed writing it immensely. Borrowing elements from the worlds of comic books and jazz, The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom and Party Girl presents the story of a divorced mother whose quest to be everything to everyone exposes the dark secrets of America's suburbs. Protagonist Audrey Corcoran never dreamed she’d try cocaine, but a year after a bitter divorce, she meets a man named Owen Little who convinces her that a little buzz mi [...]

    2. So here's the thing: how can anybody pass up a book with a title like this "The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom and Party Girl" and with cover art like that? You just can't. As I said in my currently-reading blurb: I've never read something with such an original and powerful voice. It's true, Mr. Schuster not only did an amazing job with the voice of his protagonist, but I give him props for his mad skills narrating through the eyes of a woman. It was very real, very natural feeling.All in all, [...]

    3. Ever wonder, in your most secret of hearts, what might happen if you, an average middle-class mom, started a casual cocaine habit? Schuster plays out this scenerio in a novel that is realistic, accessible, compelling, and funny.This book is truly funny, and not in the trying-too-hard or absurdist way. Actually funny. It's gut-wrenchingly intimate and authentic in its small, realistic details. It's dark and ooky at places, but not to the point that you feel you're being punished for reading it. T [...]

    4. The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom & Party Girl is a contemporary tale of a jaded divorcee named Audrey who raises her innocent and precocious daughters as a single mother, all while having to witness her ex-husband move on and assume the role of the “cool weekend parent.” In addition, her career involves overseeing a local coupon book’s production, ironically titled Eating Out, and she somehow finds herself herded into volunteering for the local school’s Good Shepherd Teacher-and-P [...]

    5. In a society where mixed messages are the norm, it is hard not to feel daily pangs of panic and confusion. We should save our money in case of recession, but we should spend our money to end the recession. We should lose thirty pounds, but we should take advantage of the buy-one-get-one deal at Domino’s. We should stay home with our children, but we should work at least forty hours a week. It is not surprising that over 15 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders. Less surprising is tha [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book.I have to say, when I first received it I was a little thrown by the coverlol's a great reade characters are totally relatable you feel like you know themyou can see them in your friends, co-workers, family and even yourself.Thanks for the giveaway , and thanks for the great read MarcBravo!! 5 stars!

    7.  Disclosure:In the interest of full disclosure I must tell you two things:1 -I received a free copy of this book as part of the good reads first copy program.  I was encouraged but not required to review (which I would have done anyway) and was not paid for my review beyond the awesomeness of having a copy of  The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom and Party Girlon my bookshelf 2 -I knew nothing about this book when I signed up for the first copy program.  Quite honestly I was only interested i [...]

    8. This novel is the first for Marc Schuster. It is a very good story about a woman whose comfortable, if boring, life slowly devolves. The story is told in a non-linear fashion. This is a good technique when handled properly. My only knock against the book is that it tends to jump around the timeline a bit too much. As you begin each chapter you need to work out exactly where you are, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but can be distracting at times. The characters are well-developed and the d [...]

    9. Wonder Mom Audrey juggles two daughters, a chaotic workplace in need of a workplace mom, and an ex-husband who just might invite her to his wedding, with unending patience and skill and a desperate need to escape. Somewhere between “no one appreciates me” and “let me out of here” is the dull quiet voice of temptation. And after all, how can you really take a stand against something if you’ve never experienced it, just once, just as an experiment, just because you’re tired of being go [...]

    10. As a mother and a child of the drug culture of the 60's, I found this book to be a fascinating read. Marc Schuster captures that constant internal battle that most mothers experience, the battle between, "I want my children to have everything I never had in a mother." and "What about me and my life? When do I get to have some fun?"To observe the lives depicted in this book is to watch a train wreck, horrifying yet fascinating. Audrey Corcoran, the main character has been living a typical suburbs [...]

    11. First rule of parenting: you don't use drugs in front of your kids. Especially if you're the one member of the parent-teacher association charged with running the school's Just-Say-No program.Audrey Corcoran is blindsided when her husband of ten years leaves her for a much-younger, thinner woman named Chloe. Desperate not to lose her young daughters the way she lost Roger, Audrey decides to get in touch with her fun side. Her adventures lead to her try cocaine, against her better judgement. In t [...]

    12. The dialogue was real, and I laughed out loud many times! It's great to be able to read a book and connect with the setting, so that you become even more involved in the charactersThe wit and dry humor of the main character made you love her in spite of poor choices and the (unfortunately) common story of suburban life in the fast lane. It was a great commentary on what drives some perfectly good, intelligent people to live life on the edge of disaster. Had to read through to the end, even if it [...]

    13. I wanted to like this book. The title, the cover, and the description of the book all made me incredibly eager to read it. Ultimately, though, I found that following the fall of a single mom into a life of cocaine addiction and dealing was more depressing than it was funny. The writing wasn't bad; it just wasn't enough to overcome the story. I'd recommend it to fans of Francince Prose's "My New American Life." /acs

    14. Well, at least it re-inforced my long held belief that cocaine turns you into an a-hole and wrecks your life. This book was sort of a flat liner - but it entertained me. Toward the end it took a more serious turn and in juxtaposition with the relative lightweight of the entire story it made the whole book look bad. It did have some great passages of pop-culture commentary on our consumer culture which I loved. I may want to check out his non-fiction.

    15. Tale about a straight laced mother of two who slowly looses herself, and all she loves, to the devil's dandruffa.k.a the white tigera.k.acaine. Is redemption possible? Hmmmmmm. Familiar themes (ain't all drug tales?), but refreshingly told. Not bad for this gentleman's first novel. 3 1/2 stars, yo. Shakeitup.

    16. There was a familiarity about this book because I grew up in Delaware County and lived on The Golden Mile when I first got married. I spent many a birthday party at Chuck-e-Cheeses. Aside from that, the book was well-written. I advise keeping the chronology in order. The story doesn't necessitate flashbacks really.

    17. I won this book through a give-away and really enjoyed reading it. It is about a recently divorced goody-goody mom who ends up with a cocaine addiction. It was interesting to see her life slowly get turned upside down as she tried so hard to remain the perfect mother.

    18. Tried too hard to be edgy - honestly early Showtime's Weeds did it much better. Events happened way too fast in the lead character's life. And supporting characters were way too cool - but they weren't. Shame, cause I really liked The Grievers.

    19. ok so this book started out as if it would be a lot of fun and then it fell flat. maybe fun wasn't the point. in any case, if you want to read something fun, don't read this. read something that's not thisat said, it was well-written, sad, ridiculous, and adult.

    20. I've come to the conclusion that I am too recently divorced to appreciate the humor of this book I'll pick it back up later.

    21. Great book about being addicted to cocaine and the lengths one will go to for a high. This book was won in the firstreads giveaway.
