A Piece of Cake: A Memoir

Broadway Books - She stumbled into gangbanging, drug dealing, and, prostitution, eventually, theft, hustling, the best scam of all: a series of 9-to-5 jobs. A piece of cake is unlike any memoir you’ll ever read. But there comes a point in her preteen years—maybe it’s the night she first tries to run away and is exposed to drugs, alcohol, and sex all at once—when Cupcake’s story shifts from a tear-jerking tragedy to a dark comic blues opera.

And that’s when things got interesting. Astonishingly, she turned it around. You have before you the strange, heart-wrenching, and exhilarating tale of a woman named Cupcake. With the help of a cobbled together family of eccentric fellow addicts and “angels”—a series of friends and strangers who came to her aid at pivotalmoments—she slowly transformed her life from the inside out.

There are shelves of memoirs about overcoming the death of a parent, hustling, near-death injuries, miscarriage, alcoholism, gangbanging, drug dealing, rape, prostitution, childhood abuse, drug addiction, or homelessness. As cupcake’s troubles grow, so do her voice and spirit. Her gut-punch sense of humor and eye for the absurd, along with her outsized will, carry her through a fateful series of events that could easily have left her dead.

A Piece of Cake: A Memoir - Young cupcake learned to survive by turning tricks, partying like a rock star, downing hard liquor, and ingesting every drug she could find while hitchhiking up and down the California coast. Cupcake brown is a dynamic and utterly original storyteller who will guide you on the most satisfying, startlingly funny, and genuinely affecting tour through hell you’ll ever take.
