Publisher's Summary

From stand-up comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish comes The Last Black Unicorn, a hilarious, edgy, and heart-wrenching collection of autobiographical essays that will leave you laughing through tears.

Tiffany Haddish grew up in one of the poorest parts of South Central Los Angeles. Her mother wound up with a debilitating brain injury after surviving a car accident. Tiffany never fit in anywhere: not in the households she rotated through in the foster care system and certainly not at the nearly all white high school she had to ride the bus an hour to attend. As an illiterate ninth grader, Tiffany did everything she could to survive. After a multitude of jobs, she finally realized that she had talent in an area she never would have suspected: comedy. Tiffany faced the 'routine' hindrances of climbing the entertainment business ladder - but had the added obstacles of sex, race, and class in her way. But she got there. She's humble, grateful, down to earth, and funny as hell. She still cleans the toilet the way she was shown by a foster mom who worked as a maid, and she still rolls her joints the way one of her foster dads taught her.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: It's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

    "Lots of laughs "

    "Grow roses out of the poop."

    Lots of laughs and fun listening to Haddish narrate her book. She's managed to add humour to the dark moments in her life.

    Haddish is a great entertainer.

    Tiffany is so lovable, transparent and authentic. Her story is REAL and shows its fine to persist in the shadow places in your life, as the light always appears at the right time. She also illustrates in her story we are actually much stronger than we think. Most importantly, even during her shadow times she never lost hope. I am now more hopeful because of her story - Thank you Tiffany xXx

    "Interesting..."

    I saw her first on The Daily Show, and I thought she was hilarious. I copped this book think it'd be funny too. But, honestly it wasn't. It was actually very sad. Her story is quite moving and she is rather candid and revelatory of her flaws, which was what made this book worthwhile to me. Tiffany had no problem airing out her demons for the world to see. This whole thang was like a vicarious heart to heart and I totally dig it.

    This book was amazingly raw. I loved it and I love Tiffany even more.
    I NEVER revisit an audiobook but as soon as I’m done telling you how amazing this book was I’m going to restart it all over again.

    "A must read! "

    This book will make you see that anything is possible no matter where you started in life while it makes you crack up the entire time. It’s The FASTEST AUDIBLE I have ever listened to. I kept making excuses to get on the car and drive so I could listen to more!!!!

    "The last black unicorn indeed!"

    I loved this book. I particularly enjoyed listening to Tiffany's voice as she narrated the story. And hearing about her experiences makes me admire her even more. Yes, she's a talented comic but most of all she's a super strong woman for having the fortitude to deal with her traumatic childhood & Adult experiences rather allowing these bad memories to envelope her and drown her. I wish her continued success, joy and happiness in all of her endeavors. This book has many life lessons & will revitalize your life!

    "Raw"

    Most memorable and favorite character was Roscoe. Tiffany has definitely done what others would never do or admit to doing. I love that she's 100% transparent and unapologetic about it. I wish more people were like her...living their truth whether good or bad.

    "I almost peed!"

    I loved every minute of this book. Tiffany Haddish is hilarious. Although her story is sometimes tragic, she's able to put a comedic spin on it. She makes you realize that no matter where you come from or how bad you life may be you can still rise.

    "Supposed to be funny-made me sad. "

    I couldn’t finish the book, the language became too much and the flippant attitude toward abortion caused me to stop listening. I’m still a fan of Tiffany Haddish and applaud her overcoming so much adversity in her life. The book is just not for me.
