While living with autism can be a challenge, it can also be a gift. For one young girl, a diagnosis of autism would mark the beginning of her and her mother’s journey of discovery. Jamila learns differently and sees the world in a unique perspective, and it would be this gift that would help her and her mother discover new ways of learning and teaching, seeing things in ways others might find unimaginable. In My Journey with Artjamila, author and mother Noorhashimah Noordin shares how she was able to break the standard mold of teaching and learn to adapt to her daughter’s unique way of learning. Using a humanistic form of pedagogy that is centered on the individual and focuses on the emotional and social development of children, Noorhashimah managed to connect and engage with her daughter, helping young Jamila concentrate on her strengths—and on her art. Jamila’s gift turned a challenge into a beautiful adventure and a fascinating experience. In her and her mother’s story, we can learn how important it is to see things from a different perspective, to embrace art as a form of therapy, to treasure memories, and importantly, to see the magical strength of will power.

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.
