The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish (2017)
Wow! Awesome memoir. Brutally honest and terrifying . Hearing the true stories like this by Haddish and other women has profoundly moved me to tears with gasps of horror followed by great respect for what they have had to deal with to get to this point. To be alive, in fact. To dare to be happy. To succeed. She was a great guest on The Daily Show around January 2018 or so (I think).
“Hunger” by Roxanne Gay also creates an intense and intimate experience of her life through her memoir. Darn it, I can’t find a post on it but I read it and it was great, sad, and distressing to learn of the life experiences of one of the most amazing minds and writers alive today. Author of the Must Read book “Bad Feminist.” Well I can’t find that review either. Maybe I read it before beginning this blog. It is certainly seared into my mind.
“Agoraphabulous!” by Sara Benincasa, another funny woman that defies the odds to survive — and to benefit all of us by sharing her story too — is a memoir of another woman saved perhaps by a sense of humor and sheer determination.
