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. Download and start listening now!

    " Author and reader TIffany Haddish provides the listener with an experience that makes you think this book was solely created to be read as an audiobook! While reading she gets tearful about her mother, and uses different voices for different characters while delivering her story in a way that only she can! Great read which made me appreciate her even more as a person! "

    " I saw the interview with Tiffany on the Daily show and knew I needed this book. I was surprised at how very deep into her life we got, and it was all amazing. It went through a lot of her trials and struggles to get where she is with a great narrative, but I only have one tiny problem: scatter shot story telling. She does tend to keep on topic, but sometimes we dig in really deep on a topic, and are instantly to another one. In the more intense chapters/stories we do stay on track, but everything else is a little scattered. VERY FUNNY, great book, amazing story, but sometimes I found myself going "Did I hear this already?" or "What were we talking about again?" especially near the end. "
