#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Ali Wong’s heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters (the two she put to work while they were still in utero) cover everything they need to know in life, like the unpleasant details of dating, how to be a working mom in a male-dominated profession, and how she trapped their dad.
“Fierce, feminist, and packed with funny anecdotes.”—Entertainment Weekly
NAMED ONE OF FALL’S MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS BY Time • Vox • USA Today • HuffPost • Bustle • Vogue • PopSugar • BookRiot • Shondaland
In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, an eight-month pregnant Ali Wong resonated so strongly that she even became a popular Halloween costume. Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women, and why you never see new mom comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads.
The sharp insights and humor are even more personal in this completely original collection. She shares the wisdom she’s learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her life off stage, including the brutal single life in New York (i.e. the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam, tales of being a wild child growing up in San Francisco, and parenting war stories. Though addressed to her daughters, Ali Wong’s letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving, and enlightening (and gross) for all.
Advance praise for Dear Girls
[Wong] spins a volume whose pages simultaneously shock and satisfy. . . . Dear Girls is not so much a real-talk handbook as it is a myth-puncturing manifesto.—Vogue
[A] refreshing, hilarious, and honest account of making a career in a male-dominated field, dating, being a mom, growing up, and so much more…Yes, this book is addressed to Wong’s daughters, but every reader will find nuggets of wisdom and inspiration and, most important, something to laugh at.—Bustle
I have to be honest comedian books are usually a hit or a miss and lately, there have been a lot of misses. I can happily say Dear Girls is a big hit! Ali Wong is a great writer and her voice shined through the book. Dear Girls is a series of letters to her daughters. I would like to pickup the Audible version as well, because actually hearing her deliver it would be even better. Yes, it was raunchy and inappropriate quite often, but also absolutely hilarious! To my surprise, there was also a lot of really good heartfelt advice to her girls. I laughed a lot, almost lost my lunch (the part about the snake…) and even shed a tear with how protective and sweet she is about her girls. The parts about motherhood were so incredibly spot on! The only thing I didn’t like was that the ending was so abrupt and I would have loved to have her give an afterword. Instead, her husband did and it was about his life, and I don’t think it really added much value to the story. All of that being said, I have to say this is still one of the most impressive comedian memoirs I’ve read and I would highly recommend it.
