Mrs. Augustus is the mother of Claire and Clinton Augustus.

She lives at 221 Elm,[1] where Claire also lived[2] before moving in with Marten.[3]




During Claire's exams, Mrs. Augustus helped her relax.[4] While they were tripping, a borzoi dog came into the house.[5] The dog was swiftly named Cosmo.[6] With Dora's help the dog was taken to a veterinarian.[7] While the veterinary office was looking for the owners of the lost dog, Mrs. Augustus acquired a book about borzois.[8] After the holding period of one week, she adopted Cosmo.[9]


Mrs Augustus is friendly, decisive and apparently feels she has the right to interfere in a mild way in her children's personal lives.[1][10]

She seems to have a serene strength beyond most of the other characters. Between her divorce and her son's fireworks injury, she has been through a lot in the past decade.

Mrs. Augustus is also quite lenient, as she allowed Claire to move in with Marten without a second thought.[11]

She makes better pancakes than the local diner in Northampton.[2]

Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll Edit

Mrs. Augustus has an active sex life, dating people her son's age, one of whom Clinton tutored. She frequently gets late night booty calls.[12]

Mrs. Augustus recreationally smokes pot through a vape pen.[11]

Mrs. Augustus has taken to bass guitar playing, impressing Marten.[13]


She has the same red hair, blue eyes, and mild overbite as her two children.
