Ali Wong's heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters cover everything they need to know in life, like the unpleasant details of dating, how to be a working mum in a male-dominated profession and how she trapped their dad. In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women and why you never see new mum comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads. The sharp insights and humour 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. Ali Wong's letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving and enlightening (and gross) for all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sometimes you just need a really entertaining read that'll make you laugh like a drain. A lot. Ali Wong's Dear Girls has you covered . . . Wong transfers her stand-up persona to the page with verve and joy while sending straight-talking letters of wisdom to her two girls * * Stylist * *
Dear Girls is not so much a real-talk handbook as it is a myth-puncturing manifesto * * Vogue * *
Praise for Ali Wong: Her intimate honesty always shines through . . . Wong has perfected that basic yet elusive trick that some writers spend their entire lives failing to master: she makes you feel as if it's just the two of you, and she trusts you enough to tell you how she really feels * * Vulture * *
A deliriously filthy and funny hour of comedy woven into a sneakily feminist assault on the double standards of parenting * * New York Times * *
