9780061778827: Bitch is the New Black: A Memoir

Strong, sassy, always surprising--and titled after a Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update" monologue by Tina Fey--Bitch Is the New Black is a deliciously addictive memoir-in-essays in which Helena Andrews goes from being the daughter of the town lesbian to a hot-shot political reporter... all while trying to answer the question, "can a strong, single, and successful black woman ever find love?" Fans of Sloane Crosley (I Was Told There'd Be Cake) will love the bold and brassy Bitch Is the New Black.

Product Description:

A memoir of Helena Andrews - sexy, single, and a self-described smart-ass - that follows on her trip from kidnapped daughter of a lesbian to Washington, DC, political reporter who can't remember a single senator's name. It explores the roller coaster of being educated and single while trying to become an actual adult and find love.

Review:

"Andrews' combination of personal anecdote and analysis of success and race makes her tales unique. And at the same time, her exploration of gender in America is one surely any woman can relate to."--Bust Magazine

"[A] bitingly funny -- and honest -- read....[Andrews] establishes herself as an individual, proving that the women who fit into the "strong (single) black woman" category are more complex than the one-dimensional persona lets on."--Associated Press

""Bitch Is the New Black" is an authentic fresh exploration of what it is to be young, black, and single right now--from a voice both outrageously funny and heartbreakingly honest."--Shonda Rhimes, creator of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice"

"I didn't like this book. I "loved" it....I'm giving copies to all of my girlfriends who have crazy families, love lives that revolve around IM, and, of course, I'm pretending I helped Helen write it."--Angela Nissel, author of "Mixed" and "The Broke Diaries"

"The scathingly witty author examines a wide variety of topics that, beneath the jokes and sarcasm, address weighty issues (depression, aging, abortion) with wry astuteness...An irreverent, savvy and sharp memoir."--Kirkus Reviews

"With honesty and wit...Andrews is not afraid to reveal anything, even her bra size."--Washington Post
