Product Details

Praise

“Growing up black and white, I always felt I had the best of both worlds. I feel the same way about Mixed. It’s the perfect blend of hilarious comedy and sometimes tragic reality.”­—Yvette Lee Bowser, creator of Living Single and executive producer of Half and Half

“I love Angela Nissel’s writing. Reading Mixed was like getting a letter from a best friend I forgot I had. How ironic that a book written by someone who felt like no one “got” her will surely be one of those rare books everyone gets- black, white, both, neither. Hilarious, sweet, and honest, Mixed is the perfect read if you’ve ever felt like the one standing on the outside– and let’s face it, who hasn’t?”—Jill Soloway, author of Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants

“Nissel is humorous, poignant, and proud yet also empathetic and generous as she recounts her constant struggle to answer the perennial question persons of mixed race seem required to ask of themselves in our society–where do I fit in?…. All readers stand to learn from her account.”­Booklist

“Colorful anecdotes, marvelous dialogue and a thoughtful narrative make this memoir a delight.”­Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“If David Sedaris was a straight biracial female, this is the book he’d write. This book is so funny I’ve already started telling people I helped Angela write it.”­—Bill Lawrence, creator of Scrubs


Praise for The Broke Diaries

“Unsentimental prose and [a] wicked sense of humor.”­USA Today

“Searing, laugh-out-loud commentary.”­—Honey
