Sharp and hilariously funny advice for growing up female from the Netflix star of Always Be My Maybe

Dear Girls is Ali Wong’s collection of heartfelt and hilarious letters to her daughters covering 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.

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 (and the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam and parenting war stories. Ali Wong’s letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving and enlightening (and gross) for all.

“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”
