I enjoyed listening to Tiffany Haddish’s memoir.
There were parts that seemed too ghetto for me and others where I felt like this woman’s lived experience is so relatable that her story is universal.
You can tell that Tiffany is working to improve herself and that the more self-aware she becomes, the more she will seek to question the status quo. We need more women like her in positions of power and influence at all levels of society.
I appreciated how she uses her understanding of humour as healing to craft her story so perfectly to mirror this form. That kept this memoir comedic and well poised to still be candid and an honest portrayal of her life’s experience.
Her use of comedic timing added to the dynamism of her story and let it flow easily whether she was relating her views on dating, hustling, mother-daughter drama or being a woman in a male-dominated world.
This is Haddish’s raw and real come-up story and it was a pleasure listening to it and getting to know more about the comedienne.
