“A book of essays as raw and honest as anyone has ever produced.” — Lena Dunham, Lenny Letter
In the spirit of Amy Poehler’s Yes Please, Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl, and Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist, a powerful collection of essays about gender, sexuality, race, beauty, Hollywood, and what it means to be a modern woman.
One month before the release of the highly anticipated film The Birth of a Nation, actress Gabrielle Union shook the world with a vulnerable and impassioned editorial in which she urged our society to have compassion for victims of sexual violence. In the wake of rape allegations made against director and actor Nate Parker, Union—a forty-four-year-old actress who launched her career with roles in iconic ’90s movies—instantly became the insightful, outspoken actress that Hollywood has been desperately awaiting. With honesty and heartbreaking wisdom, she revealed her own trauma as a victim of sexual assault: "It is for you that I am speaking. This is real. We are real."
In this moving collection of thought provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union uses that same fearlessness to tell astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards, and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents. Genuine and perceptive, Union bravely lays herself bare, uncovering a complex and courageous life of self-doubt and self-discovery with incredible poise and brutal honesty. Throughout, she compels us to be ethical and empathetic, and reminds us of the importance of confidence, self-awareness, and the power of sharing truth, laughter, and support.

Things are about to get real . . . Cheers!!
Actress, activist, and one half of a power couple, Gabrielle Union is actually a lot like the rest of us. She’s also navigating today’s world in ways that are all too familiar. In this engaging, provocative, and funny collection of essays about her life and our modern world, Gabrielle reveals the smart, tough woman she really is. From her younger years as one of the very few African Americans in her California high school to the harrowing story of her rape and the aftermath; her navigation of Hollywood to her role as stepmother to her husband Dwyane Wade’s sons, wrestling with self-doubt to reveling in self-discovery, We’re Going to Need More Wine is one dear friend dishing to another. Surprising and special, it will nourish your soul and expand your mind.


Recenzii

“Union invites readers into her world with honesty, grit, and grace. A much-needed addition to the endless catalog of celebrity memoirs.”


“searing and powerful”
We’re Going to Need More Wine is a collection of funny and emotional essays...Union gets real about everything”
“stunning...an affirmation of [Union’s] uncanny insight and profound capacity for empathy.”
“Moving”
“[A] thought-provoking, funny, tell-it-like-it-is essay collection”
“I have gotten the pleasure to know Gabrielle over the years and besides the fact that she loves to drink, I’ve always taken comfort in how much we have in common. The predilection to go from talking about the latest humiliating sexual position to a debate on politics or racism, that’s exactly what this book felt like to me, an honest conversation with Gabrielle about her life. I appreciate her integrity, love her humor and openness about her life. I also love the fact that she’s older than me . . . Go, girl.”
“I love this woman and her book.”
We’re Going to Need More Wine is honest, raw, and funny. Union’s vulnerability about her flaws and mistakes, and also pride in her triumphs, will not only make you feel as though you’re seeing yourself reflected, but will also inspire you to be your most authentic self.”

“A hilarious and moving memoir from a natural storyteller. Gabrielle Union explores love, family, trauma and racial identity in a book that somehow manages to be both heartbreakingly honest and laugh-out-loud funny.”
“With honesty and humor, Union bares her soul and shares her levels of insecurity, the difficulties of being a black woman in Hollywood, and the way fame has changed her life. She embraces many multilayered issues in these intimate essays, giving readers glimpses of insight into her soul.”
“[Gabrielle] Union is warm, outspoken, laugh-out-loud funny…This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and deservedly so.”  
“This sparkling book collects amusing and heartbreaking stories from the life of actress Union...[her] no-holds-barred essays and intimate voice will appeal to her fans as well as those less familiar with her work.”
