Lying on an ER gurney following a failed suicide attempt, Jamie Brickhouse was more terrified of the fact that Mama Jean was flying in from Texas than the alcoholic trauma that had landed him in the ER in the first place. So begins this astonishing memoir – by turns both hilarious and deeply moving – about this native Texan’s long struggle with alcohol, his complicated relationship with Mama Jean, and his sexuality. Join us tonight as he shares his story.
