NEW YORK (AP) — Tiffany Haddish’s next book will be partly a story of laughter through tears.
Amistad, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Friday that Haddish’s “I Curse You With Joy” essay collection is slated for November 29.
“‘I Curse You With Joy’ includes stories about how Haddish uses comedy to metabolize pain and turn it into art, auditioning for ‘Saturday Night Live’ before being the first black comic to host it, how the trauma in her own life has made her more compassionate and her complicated relationship with her father, whom she reunited with after 20 years,” Amistad’s announcement reads in part.
Haddish’s first essay book, “The Last Black Unicorn,” was a bestseller published in 2017. She has a picture book, “Layla, The Last Black Unicorn,” due out in May.
“After my first book, I knew I wanted to share more of myself in ‘I Curse You With Joy,'” Haddish said in a statement. “I want to take readers on a journey with me that is hahaha and up and down. low, so people know that even through pain you can spread joy.”
