NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The heart-wrenching, uplifting tale about a woman named Cupcake

“[Cupcake] Brown’s confessional . . . memoir is one you can’t easily put down. Her life is nothing short of a miracle.”—Chicago Sun-Times

There are shelves of memoirs about overcoming the death of a parent, childhood abuse, rape, drug addiction, miscarriage, alcoholism, hustling, gangbanging, near-death injuries, drug dealing, prostitution, and homelessness.

Cupcake Brown survived all these things before she’d even turned twenty. 

And that’s when things got interesting. . . 

Orphaned by the death of her mother and left in the hands of a sadistic foster parent, young Cupcake Brown learned to survive by turning tricks, downing hard liquor, and ingesting every drug she could find while hitchhiking up and down the California coast. She stumbled into gangbanging, drug dealing, hustling, prostitution, theft, and, eventually, the best scam of all: a series of 9-to-5 jobs. 

A Piece of Cake is unlike any memoir you’ll ever read. Moving in its frankness, this is the most satisfying, startlingly funny, and genuinely affecting tour through hell you’ll ever take.

Praise for A Piece of Cake

“[Brown] reflects now with insight and honesty on her experiences. . . . An engaging account . . . of a remarkable life filled with pain and wisdom, hope and redemption.”—San Fracisco Chronicle

“Dazzles you with the amazing change that is possible in one lifetime.”—Washington Post

  • Jen L.

    This book had me on edge... curious what was gonna come next, tears in my eyes at some of the things that took place and finished these 21 hours in 3 days. Couldn’t stop listening.

  • Stacey W.

    I've read this book twice, and it's a pretty thick book,that just goes to show how good it is. Cupcake Brown, had a tragic life, but came out on top in the end. Funny, heart wrenching and everything in between.

  • Jennifer R.

    This book is raw. As a mother myself it was gut wrenching to get through parts, but such a strong story of recovery, redemption and forgiveness. Great Book

  • Evalye A

    Amazing book. I was unable to turn it off. the author made you feel like you were watching a movie.

  • Peggy Stortz

    Ms. Brown's story of rape, abuse and drug addiction is not for the faint of heart. But for those who can handle the pain and profanity, it is one amazing tale which is written with honesty and courage.
