Strong, sassy, always surprising—and titled after a Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” monologue by Tina Fey—Bitch Is the New Black is a deliciously addictive memoir-in-essays in which Helena Andrews goes from being the daughter of the town lesbian to a hot-shot political reporter… all while trying to answer the question, “can a strong, single, and successful black woman ever find love?” Fans of Sloane Crosley (I Was Told There’d Be Cake) will love the bold and brassy Bitch Is the New Black.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The scathingly witty author examines a wide variety of topics that, beneath the jokes and sarcasm, address weighty issues (depression, aging, abortion) with wry astuteness…An irreverent, savvy and sharp memoir.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Bitch Is the New Black is an authentic fresh exploration of what it is to be young, black, and single right now—from a voice both outrageously funny and heartbreakingly honest.”

    Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice

  • “I didn’t like this book. I loved it…I’m giving copies to all of my girlfriends who have crazy families, love lives that revolve around IM, and, of course, I’m pretending I helped Helen write it.”

    Angela Nissel, author of The Broke Diaries

  • “[A] bitingly funny—and honest—read…[Andrews] establishes herself as an individual, proving that the women who fit into the ‘strong (single) black woman’ category are more complex than the one-dimensional persona lets on.”

    Associated Press

  • “Andrews’ combination of personal anecdote and analysis of success and race makes her tales unique. And at the same time, her exploration of gender in America is one surely any woman can relate to.”


  • “With honesty and wit…Andrews is not afraid to reveal anything, even her bra size.”

    Washington Post

    " It took me a long time to finish. I appreciate her opening her life to us but it read really disjointed. I found it hard to follow. I thought I'd find the groove of her writing style but could never connect. "

    " This book took me on a fantastic roller coaster ride. I laughed and nodded in silent agreements as Helena skillfully recounted the ups and downs of her life's journey. Simply put, I loved it!! "

    " Made it through chapter 4 when I finally gave up. Just didn't care for it at all. "

    " "High off that new boy smell, I overlooked the fact that he said put up instead of put away & wore dress shoes with pressed denim. The squealing, though was too high pitched to ignore. Play with my nipples he moaned, out of breath on our first conjugal visit. Um, okay, I guess, why not?" lol G.H.E.I was my favorite chapter. I couldn't stop laighing.... "
