About the author

I was raised on a somewhat isolated farm. Social contact was limited to church and family; entertainment consisted of one radio which only played Dad’s programs. Therefore, I relied on my imagination to relieve boredom. Being a voracious reader, I rewrote every book I read as I read it. When we saw a rare movie, I dreamed on it for months afterward and revised the script in my mind over and over. Such being the case, my love of writing began at a very early age. My writing career actually began in highschool and has continued on to the present day. I’ve written advertisements for Real Estate and radio, political publications, both local and national, newspaper articles, etc. I’ve had some success with two publications entitled, PMS and BOB. These are facetious renditions of faux magazines whose initials stand for: PRIME MACHO STUDS, and BEAUTIFUL OLD BROADS. I feel I can use that term without being accused of discrimination because I’m one myself. They are illustrated, for I am also a graphic artist and do all my own illustrations. My husband and I moved from midwestern Ohio in the late 90’s to Florida. I am now a widow and have remained here with those of my family who also live in Florida. My husband and I raised six children. I now have 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“An inspiring story that manages to be painful, honest, shocking, bawdy and hilarious.” —The New York Times Book Review

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.
