This is definitely worth reading Haddish is incredibly funny smart and observant She has lived a hard life which makes her success all the admirable and deserved There are places where I wanted depth The book is short and reads fast sometimes too fast But the funny parts will bring you to tears So will the painful parts I am not a fan of books by comedians is all They just don t work as cohesive narratives

Indomitable spirit Which historical figures come to mind when you hear that phrase Mother Teresa Gandhi maybe Those are two of the people who pop into my head right awayAnd now whenever I hear those words I will also think of Tiffany HaddishI was late to the Haddish fandom I somehow missed her years of stand up It wasn t until I saw the preview for Girls Trip and was like WHO IS THAT HILARIOUS WOMAN that I became aware of herTwo days before the movie hit theaters I saw her on Jimmy Kimmel talking about how she took Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith on a Groupon swamp tour If you haven t seen this interview do yourself a favor and watch it Do not drink or eat anything while you do because the threat of choking is REALSo this hilarious witty high energy woman with an infectious smile was a large part of the reason I watched Girls Trip second only to the desire to support this glorious comedy with an ensemble of super talented black women staring in a major motion picture seriously Golden Globes how the hell did you snub this movieI ll just come right out and say it Girls Trip is the funniest movie I ve ever seen If you haven t watched it yet do so We need to support women driven movies We need to support women of color in the industry especially since the industry itself doesn t For on this check out Jada s Twitter thread Seriously Haddish was robbed If she doesn t get nominated for an Oscar I will lose what little faith remains in the Academy For me she stole every single scene that she appeared in She s one of those people that your eyes drift to even when the whole ensemble is together Because the whole time you re wondering what she ll do nextOkay so this is supposed to be a book review but I wanted to include all this background because it s what led me to The Last Black UnicornI listened to the audio version of this and I recommend you do the same because it s an EXPERIENCE Haddish herself is the narrator and whenever you can listen to someone tell their own story you should She brings an emotion and realness to the narration that no one else could And if you think this is one of those books that you re just going to laugh your way through be warned You re notYou ll probably cry at some point Hard Like I did Your face will probably burn with the strength of your blushes because you know those horrifically embarrassing memories you have of your teen years Those stories you ll never tell anyone because OMFG I WISH I COULD FORGET THAT HAPPENED We all have those stories including Haddish And she tells them Without sugar coating anything I cringed so hard so many times because it brought up all those times I acted in ways that make me yearn for brain bleachLastly you ll probably get so angry while listening to this that you ll want to punch someoneMe before this audio book My childhood was kind of messed up Me after this audio book My childhood was a wonderland of merriment and bliss Tiffany Haddish s childhood and early adult life wererough You need to prepare yourself for hearing what she went through Child abuse molestation physically abusive romantic relationships At one point she was a pimp Which all sounds pretty Dickensian and bleak And it can be at times But those times are made bearable because Haddish is a hell of a storyteller One minute I found myself in a full rage about what was done to her and the next I was hysterically laughingThat is where my opening statement comes fromIndomitable spiritBecause after everything that she s been through the fact that she is so positive and hysterical and energetic is awe inspiring This is grade A role model material right hereI can t recommend this book enough For literally everyone Because I truly do believe there is something here for everyone I truly do believe that men and women from all walks of life will find takeaways here That they ll be inspired by her story That they ll apply her lessons to their own livesThat it will help people going through a hard time to find the lightBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest

The Last Black Unicorn Free read ☆ 108 Tiffany Haddish ´ 8 Free read review Ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Tiffany Haddish Her first book Haddish recounts her early life straight through to her powerhouse success both on the comedy circuit and in Hollywood with the 2017 film Girls Tri. I haven t seen Girls Trip The Carmichael Show Keanu or If Loving You is Wrong Big surprise I m not a raucous rude comedy appreciating viewer Not that there s anything wrong with those who are of course I became a Haddish Fan Girl the first time I viewed the 5 7 minute video clip of Haddish on the Jimmy Kimmel show doing her bit on Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and the swamp tour It was the funniest most brilliant bit I ve seen in a long long time On that basis I checked LBU out of my library with no to low expectations not because of Haddish but because comedian memoirs are often problematic Like most of America I read Bossypants a while back Fine but not revealing Similarly Amy Poehler s book is funny in parts but on the whole it s not special or memorable That 5 star rating doesn t mean that I consider Tiffany Haddish s memoir to be the literary euivalent of Crime and Punishment I rate the books I read on whether they were successful in their category and in this instance The Last Black Unicorn is a top flight comedian memoir and vastly better than readers have a right to expect from any celebrity memoir generally As an aside she won my heart by explicitly thanking her ghost writer and allowing her ghost writer to write hisher I don t recall acknowledgments at the end That is incredibly gracious of her and I can t recall the last time I saw a celebrity recognize the talent of her writing partner Haddish s memoir is her story in her voice As in each reader needs to be prepared for plentiful f bombs intentional bad grammar slang et al I suspect she s a champion code switcher but she chose to write LBU in her stand up voice and readers shouldn t expect anything different LBU also includes horrifying details about Haddish s childhood about domestic violence about rejection by her mom who suffers from mental illness And she manages to present the bad accompanied by just enough humor to take the edge off while still disclosing all of the pain and the horror In contrast I stopped reading Rabbit The Autobiography of Ms Pat after 15 20 pages because her descriptions of childhood events so disturbed meEighty percent of LBU is a chronological telling of Haddish s life to date including her overnight success that didn t occur overnight Then for good measure several of her greatest bits finish it off That s when I encountered the Smith Groupon SwampTour story in writing And it was word for word identical to her performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show As in Haddish has perfected delivering her lines and bits so that she comes across like your favorite girlfriend casually telling you one of the funniest stories you ve ever heard from the passenger seat of your car while you head to Target But there s nothing casual about how she approaches her work It is nothing less than perfect every time even if she seems to be entirely relaxed in her Uggs Tiffany Haddish is funny And gifted And perceptive And likeable And a hard worker And resilient And authentic And still seeks a relationship with her trouble mom in a way that makes your heart break And she is through it all a consummate professional If you like her you ll love The Last UnicornHaddish s father left when she was 3 Mom remarries and has 4 kids Haddish s stepfather tampers with the brakes on her mom s car intending to kill all of the kids as well as mom but they weren t in the car when Mom had an accident and suffered severe brain damage Mom later is diagnosed with schizophrenia After the accident Haddish then 9 is in charge of herself and her four younger siblings Read that sentence again I ll wait Haddish and her siblings enter foster care when she is 12 and they are temporarily separated from one another Foster care is as good as you ve ever heard elsewhere At 15 she and her siblings are together under the care of their grandmother Wait you say there was a grandma Why didn t she take them in earlier She s a piece of work She cares for them to the extent of the DSS payments When Haddish turns 18 and the DSS checks stop Haddish is on her own I m not made of nearly as strong stuff as Ms Haddish She has all of my respect for her lack of bitterness and her large heart If you re interested don t hesitate to read her book
