Product description


“[Gabrielle Union’s] written a book of essays as raw and honest as anyone has ever produced. In this fantastic book, she discusses everything from sexual assault to the complexity of money in relationships to infertility (plus all the extra gossip you crave). Gab has not only excused the demons of her two-decade career, but she’s turned the exercise into primal scream therapy for her fans. As witty, warm, and assured on the page as she is in person, this book lives somewhere between Nora Ephron and Eve Babitz, with a touch of Audre Lorde’s radical awareness.” -- Lena Dunham, Lenny Letter

“searing and powerful” -- Washington Post

We’re Going to Need More Wine is a collection of funny and emotional essays...Union gets real about everything” -- USA Today

“ affirmation of [Union’s] uncanny insight and profound capacity for empathy.” -- Entertainment Weekly

“Moving” -- Glamour

“[A] thought-provoking, funny, tell-it-like-it-is essay collection” -- Cosmopolitan

“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.” -- Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Uganda Be Kidding Me  

“I love this woman and her book.” -- Mindy Kaling, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?

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.”
-- Phoebe Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of You Can’t Touch My Hair

“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.” -- Brit Bennett, New York Times bestselling author of The Mothers

“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.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“[Gabrielle] Union is warm, outspoken, laugh-out-loud funny…This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and deservedly so.”   -- Booklist (Starred Review)

“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.” -- Publishers Weekly

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

-- Library Journal (starred review)

From the Inside Flap

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.

--Mindy Kaling, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?
