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.

3.0
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleThis is a very difficult book to rate. It wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. There were definitely funny parts, but much of the book dealt with very serious issues. This is not a critique, but I think it is helpful knowing this before you start ...

4.0 Last Black Unicorn
A co-worker of mine recommended this book to me. I had not previously heard of Tiffany Haddish, but I'm ready to seek out any stand-up specials or movies I can find featuring her. Haddish recounts stories of an abusive mother, absent father, foster care, ex-boyfriends, abusive ex-husband, and her ...

4.0 I guess that's one way to go into business for yourself
The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish is part memoir and part uplifting 'anyone can succeed' comedy. It was quite an interesting experience reading this on the heels of I've Got This Round as both are funny slice of life books by hilarious women. The main difference is that I felt more of a conn...

3.0 Lack of Cohesive Structure Causes Memoir to Lack Depth
Well. I do love Tiffany Haddish. I have been so happy to see how popular she has gotten and wish her nothing but success. That said, this memoir was lacking in a lot of ways for me. Parts of it were funny and parts just made me want to find her and give her a hug. This entire memoir is raw. It is al...

4.0 The Last Black Unicorn
I Picked Up This Book Because: I’ve seen Tiffany give several interviews concerning the book and her stories are just too good not to hear/read. The Story: Tiffany might be one of the best souls I’ve ever gotten to know a piece of in my time on this earth. The things she has been through, the abus...
