Happily Ali After
And Other Fairly True TaleseBook - 2015
The actress, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author picks up where she left off in Ali in Wonderland, dissecting modern life--and this time, she's 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 growing metaphysical importance. And thus begins her "Unhappiness Project."
It's not all that long before Ali expands her self-improvement quest to include parenting, relationships, fitness (or lack thereof), and dieting advice. The results are painfully (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 far-fetched, Happily Ali After is a thoroughly entertaining collection from "the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything" (Huffington Post).
