New York Times bestselling author Ali Wentworth offers her hilarious and unique advice on surviving the absurdity of modern life in her third collection of laugh-out-loud comic vignettes.
Ali Wentworth’s first two books, Ali in Wonderland and Happily Ali After, were lauded by readers, critics, and fellow comedians alike. Entertainment Weekly included Happily Ali After on its "Must List" and hailed it as "hilarious. . . . Her glass isn’t half full—it’s "empty and cracked," while Cosmopolitan praised it as "razor-sharp." Chelsea Handler called Ali in Wonderland "truly hilarious," and Kathy Griffin christened it, "Chicken Soup for the Vagina." Alec Baldwin has described Ali as "funny and warm and crazy all at once. Like Barbara Eden. But on something. Like crystal meth," and Jerry Seinfeld has raved, "Everything that comes out of Ali Wentworth’s mouth is funny!"
At once endearing and hilarious, thoughtful and far-fetched, this third collection offers Ali at her wisest and wittiest as she delivers tips, pointers, and quips on a host of life’s conundrums and sticky situations, including the funny, sometimes embarrassing yet unforgettable situations that have shaped her inimitable world view as a wife, mother, actress, comedian, and all around bon vivant. Thoroughly entertaining, Go Ask Ali is packed with thoughts and musings from "the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything" (Huffington Post).

“Everything that comes out of Ali Wentworth’s mouth is funny!” (Jerry Seinfeld)
From the Back Cover
People—even complete strangers—are always asking Ali Wentworth for advice. So, far be it for this actress-comedian and New York Times bestselling author to deny them. And if her hard-won wisdom can be as outrageously off-kilter as it is hilarious, well, it’s not as if the recipient didn’t know what to expect from the irrepressible, irreverent Wentworth.
Now she channels her inner Dear Abby as she delivers tips, pointers, and judgments on a host of life’s conundrums and sticky situations. As always, this high priestess of “razor sharp” (Cosmopolitan), albeit self-deprecating, self-awareness draws on her singular experiences as a wife, mother, and performer, never shirking from talking about the embarrassing or just plain ludicrous. Whether imparting her insights on sex, parenting, infidelity, gossip, friendship, beauty, or Instagram, her anecdote-spiked reflections reveal an inimitable worldview.
At once endearing and hilarious, thoughtful and far-fetched, and always thoroughly entertaining, Go Ask Ali is packed with thoughts and musings from “the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything” (Huffington Post).
