Ripped from the pages of the critically-acclaimed memoir of the same title, Dangerous When Wet is Jamies unforgettable story of hisaddiction to booze, men, and his Texas tornado of a mother Mama Jean.From the age of five, all he wanted was to be at a cocktail party with a martini in one hand and a cigarette in the other. All Mama Jean wanted was to keep him at that age, her Jamie doll forever. A Texan Elizabeth Taylor with the split personality of Auntie Mame and Mama Rose, she never had a thought she didnt speak, and she haunted him his whole life, no matter how deep in booze he swam. With sparkling wit and blistering honesty, Jamie tells the story of coming to terms with his two most defining relationships: booze and Mama Jean.
