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.

Back cover copy

Bitch Is the New Black follows Andrews--sexy, single, and a self-described smart-ass--on 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.
