Bitch Is the New Black (Paperback)
Bitch Is the New Black follows Andrewssexy, single, and a self-described smart-asson her trip from kidnapped daughter of a lesbian to Washington, D.C., political reporter who can't remember a single senator's name. Told in Andrews's singular voice, this addictive memoir explores the roller coaster of being educated and single while trying to become an "actual adult" and find love. In these unafraid and often brutally frank essays, she comes to realize that being a bitch is sometimes the best way to be...except, of course, when it's not.
About the Author
A graduate of Columbia University, Helena Andrews has written for numerous publications including Glamour, the New York Times, and TheRoot.com. She lives in Washington, D.C., and is working on the film adaptation of Bitch Is the New Black.
“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.”
“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
“[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.”
“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.”
“With honesty and wit...Andrews is not afraid to reveal anything, even her bra size.”
