Author Phyllis Karsnia was bitten by the travel bug when a friend coaxed her to go on a trip to the Caribbean. That vacation was the first of many journeys.

In her collection of travel adventures, Karsnia chronicles her travels to Portugal, Italy, England, Austria, Norway, the Greek Islands, and beyond. She explored the beauty, fun, and wonder of different countries and their cultures, histories, and people. Beginning with her initial trip to the Caribbean, Karsnia shares fascinating details and amusing stories that provide a glimpse into what it was like for a novice traveler as she stepped outside her comfort zone and embraced the world through travel. As she received a blessing by Pope John Paul II in St. Peters Square, visited Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, prayed in a Buddhist Temple, and joined a parade during Norways celebration of Syttende Mai, she gathered memories, celebrated differences, and learned meaningful lessons.

Journeys is a collection of travelogues highlighting the authors unforgettable experiences as she toured around the world. She punctuates her adventures with humorous stories about everyday events and retreats with sisters who love each other and love to play pranks. On a serious note, Karsnia also joins the re-opened discussions about equality in the workplace and working mothers.

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.
