A is for Ambien

A children’s book for adults, A is for Ambien adopts the familiar grammar school construction of the Alphabet Poem to lampoon mommy’s reliance on pharmaceuticals from A to Z. Given the overstressed, overworked, tough economic times we’re living in today, who doesn’t need a good hearty laugh-out-loud moment or two about pre-existing conditions?

    This is an interesting take on the American way of life. We are in a society where we rely on pharmaceuticals to get through the day. It it a shame we have to numb ourselves down and ultimately rely on drugs that you can easily get from any doctor and it’s legal and accepted and we land in detox and rehab over and over. Three ways hospital, jail and or death. Wake up and get off the meds and wake up. Deal with life.with out drugs.

    A is for Ambien is unlike any other book, consisting of a series of powerful, witty, unexpected description-scenarios that can be read as poems or almost, like brief plays, each “letter” is complete in itself.”Z is for Zoloft” — “Mommy takes this so we can all live happily-ever-after”!

    Each chapter demonstrates Ms Ferris’ marvelous insights into the intricacies of human relationships, displaying her talents not only as a a poet but a satirist as well.

    It is a great and witty look at the modern American epoch!
