Staff Reviews

Have you ever thought of something embarrassing you did as a child and cringe? If you’re like me—and Una LaMarche—you could fill an entire book with these humiliating moments. Fortunately for you, LaMarche has done just so in her new book, Unabrow. She pairs her 90’s R&B obsession quite nicely with all the advice you should have gotten from your strange older sister. Tuck this one next to Jenny Lawson on your bookshelf.

— Louise


In between highbrow and lowbrow, there's Unabrow.

"Take the cast of 'Bridesmaids, ' add a dash of pre-pubescent Eugene Levy, and you have the humor stylings of Una LaMarche."--Ann Imig, founder of Listen to Your Mother

As a girl, Una LaMarche was as smart as she was awkward. She was blessed with a precocious intellect, a love of all things pop culture, and eyebrows bushier than Frida Kahlo's. Adversity made her stronger...and funnier. In Unabrow, Una shares the cringe-inducing lessons she's learned from a life as a late bloomer, including the seven deadly sins of DIY bangs, how not to make your own jorts, and how to handle pregnancy, plucking, and the rites of passage during which your own body is your worst frenemy.

For readers who loved Let's Pretend This Never Happened and for fans of Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, and Amy Schumer, Unabrow is the book June Cleaver would have written if she spent more time drinking and less time vacuuming.
