More About Rabbit by Patricia Williams; Jeannine Amber
 
 
 
Overview
A remarkably bold and inspiring story of crime, motherhood and redemption-not since Cupcake Brown's A Piece of Cake has there been a memoir this unforgettable.You want to know about the struggle of growing up poor, black, and female? Ask any girl from any hood. You want to know what it takes to rise above your circumstances when all the cards are stacked against you? Ask me.Comedian Patricia Williams, who for years went by her street-name "Rabbit," was born and raised in Atlanta's most troubled neighborhood at the height of the crack epidemic.One of five children, Pat watched as her alcoholic mother struggled to get by on charity, cons and petty crimes. At seven Pat was taught to roll drunks for money. At twelve, she was targeted for sex by a man eight years her senior; 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 no job skills and 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 and unexpected humor that offers a rare glimpse into the harrowing reality of life on America's margins, resilience, determination, and the transformative power of love.
