NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Heartfelt and hilarious essays from the Emmy and Golden Globe Award–winning actress, star of the Netflix original series Beef, and two-time member of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of the Year list
“A collection of letters to her baby girls that are barn-burning reflections on being a working mom, marriage, sex, and more. If you’ve ever wanted to have Ali Wong’s signature voice in your head for 200-plus pages, now’s your chance.”—Glamour

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Time, Variety, Chicago Tribune, Glamour, New York

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.

Praise for Dear Girls

“Fierce, feminist, and packed with funny anecdotes.”—Entertainment Weekly

“[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

I didn't know Wong before she got famous. I liked her first Netflix special but found the second one to be way too try hard and a bit too shallow (very obviously deliberately). Unfortunately this book was similar to that. She is catering to our times a bit too much to the point it just stops being funny and pretentious in the way that most "keeping it real" public figures are right now. The bit supposedly written by her husband wad the same. Bit of a shame as I believe she probably is actually funny as a person. Hope she made lots of money off the book as it is very clearly the only focus of the entire content, along with self aggrandizing and cementing herself as famous and important... Also very annoying that half the book was narrated by her and the other half by someone else.

I loved this book. Nothing gets better than having the author read their own book, so you get the realest feeling on how it was meant to be heard. Loved everything about it. Ali Wong is so real and there’s no beating around the bush when it comes to what her message is.
