Rabbit: A Memoir

15.99

The popular comedienne Ms. Pat tells the harrowing yet inspiring story of her childhood growing up in the urban South at the height of the crack epidemic, and how she found her way out in this unforgettable memoir infused with stunning emotional power.

Born and raised in Atlanta at the height of the crack epidemic, Patricia Williams (aka Ms. Pat) watched as her mother struggled to raise five children on charity, cons, and petty crimes. At age seven, Pat, known as Rabbit, was taught to roll drunks for money. At twelve, she was targeted for sex by an older man. By thirteen, she was pregnant. By fifteen, Pat was a mother of two. Alone at sixteen, Pat was determined to make a better life for her children. But with only an eighth-grade education, her options were limited. She learned quickly that hustling and humor were the only tools she had to survive. Rabbit is an unflinching memoir of cinematic scope, wisdom, and unexpected humor that gives us a rare glimpse of what it’s really like to be a black mom in America.
