The actress, comedian, media darling, and New York Times bestselling author picks up where she left off in Ali in Wonderland, dissecting modern life—and this time, on a mission of self-improvement—in a series of laugh-out-loud comic vignettes.
Moved by a particularly inspirational tweet one day, Ali Wentworth resolves to live by the pithy maxims she discovers in her feeds. What begins as a sort of self-help project quickly turns into something far grander—and increasingly funnier—as the tweets she once viewed with irony become filled with increasing metaphysical importance. And thus begins her “Unhappiness Project.”
It’s not long before Ali expands her self-improvement quest to include parenting, relationship, fitness (or lack thereof), and dieting advice. The results are painfully (and at times literally) clear: when it comes to self-help, sometimes you should leave it to the professionals.
At once endearing and hilarious, thoughtful and absurd, Happily Ali After is a thoroughly entertaining collection.
“Wentworth is funny. She gracefully and elegantly bares embarrassing stories from her past and hilariously conveys the challenges of her marriage to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos and of raising their two children.”
“Everything that comes out of Ali Wentworth’s mouth is funny!”
Jerry Seinfeld, praise for the author
“Ali Wentworth is funny and warm and crazy all at once.”
Alec Baldwin, praise for the author
“Irresistible…Reading this book is like sitting with a best girlfriend—how fitting it is that Wentworth dedicated it to all of hers.”
