Praise For Bitch Is the New Black: A Memoir…
— Kirkus Reviews
“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.”
— Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers
“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.”
— Bust Magazine
“With honesty and wit...Andrews is not afraid to reveal anything, even her bra size.”
— Washington Post
