NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“An inspiring story that manages to be painful, honest, shocking, bawdy and hilarious.” —The New York Times Book Review

From stand-up comedian, actress, and breakout star of Girls Trip, Tiffany Haddish, comes The Last Black Unicorn, a sidesplitting, hysterical, edgy, and unflinching collection of (extremely) personal essays, as fearless as the author herself.

Growing up in one of the poorest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, Tiffany learned to survive by making people laugh. If she could do that, then her classmates would let her copy their homework, the other foster kids she lived with wouldn’t beat her up, and she might even get a boyfriend. Or at least she could make enough money—as the paid school mascot and in-demand Bar Mitzvah hype woman—to get her hair and nails done, so then she might get a boyfriend.

None of that worked (and she’s still single), but it allowed Tiffany to imagine a place for herself where she could do something she loved for a living: comedy.

Tiffany can’t avoid being funny—it’s just who she is, whether she’s plotting shocking, jaw-dropping revenge on an ex-boyfriend or learning how to handle her newfound fame despite still having a broke person’s mind-set. Finally poised to become a household name, she recounts with heart and humor how she came from nothing and nowhere to achieve her dreams by owning, sharing, and using her pain to heal others.

By turns hilarious, filthy, and brutally honest, The Last Black Unicorn shows the world who Tiffany Haddish really is—humble, grateful, down-to-earth, and funny as hell. And now, she’s ready to inspire others through the power of laughter.

    So I'm not much of a reader or a reader at all really, but after seeing all the great reviews I had to see for myself. It was definitely worth it and I couldn't put it down. It was a tear jerker to all out LOL! I really hope that they will make this into a movie as it is well deserved. This has definitely given me a new level of respect for Ms. Tiffany Haddish. I love you and thank you for blessing us with your story.

    Tiffany’s definitely keeping it real. This is an excellent read...she’s speaking her truth and “the truth will set you free”. One day I hope to meet her. Yep, “she ready”.

    Loved this book, whilst hilarious, it spoke to who Tiffany is, her experiences dinner to the top. There was no "sugar coating"!. If I didnt have the strength to be honest with myself, I do now.

    This book made me laugh, cry & get angry, I purchased it in audio because I wanted to hear Tiffany tell her story, sometimes to read I almost gave up verses HEARING I almost gave up has a different impact.I caught myself laughing out loud, talking back to her & even giving advice! Thank you Tiffany for sharing your magic with me✨ SHE READY‼️‼️‼️
