Overview

Ali in Wonderland: And Other Tall Tales by Ali Wentworth

Mix 1 oz. Chelsea Handler, 1.5 oz. Nora Ephron, finish with a twist of Tina Fey, and you get Ali in Wonderland, the uproarious, revealing, and heartfelt memoir from acclaimed actress and comedian Ali Wentworth. Whether spilling secrets about her quintessentially WASPy upbringing (and her delicious rebellion against it), reminiscing about her Seinfeld “Schmoopie” days and her appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, or baring the details of starting a family alongside husband George Stephanopoulos, one thing is for sure—Ali has the unsurpassable humor and warmth of a born storyteller with a story to tell: the quirky, flavorful, surprising, and sometimes scandalous Ali in Wonderland.

“Ali Wentworth is funny and warm and crazy all at once. Like Barbara Eden. But on something. Like crystal meth.” —Alec Baldwin

DYING FOR A SEQUEL... This book is just like reconnecting with an old friend over cocktails, MANY cocktails....time flies by, you laugh your ass off, and are left wanting more. Wentworth is raw, dead on, laugh out loud funny and a natural, gifted story-teller. Perfect for an airplane, at the beach or anytime you need an escape read.

Ali Wentworth has a very quirky sense of humor and some people will probably not get it, but I really enjoyed the book. Especially like the briefer, independent-but flowing, short story approach.

I requested this book after reading the reviews, particularly the quotes from Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler, because I know that if they think someone is funny, so will I. I was right – Ali Wentworth proved to be quite the comedian and storyteller in Ali in Wonderland. I’m not sure everything in this book is true, as the title states, “and other tall tales”, but this "memoir" is hilarious anyway. Her descriptions of people are so ridiculous that I found myself rereading those parts to my boyfriend, hoping he’d get a kick out of them as well. I believe this was one of my favorite lines: “Abigail was an anemic blonde from Winnetka, Illinois. Abigail was light on the outside, but dark on the inside. She had a face like a fetus and wore Fair Isle sweaters, knee socks, and clogs.” Hah – I love that. Surely not everyone will appreciate her sense of humor, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s all in the little things she says – things you might overlook if you are waiting for the next big joke. There’s no buildup, there’s no punch line, this woman is just funny. Period. I definitely suggest reading this one. 4/5 stars for the occasional dull moment, but they are few and far between. Reviewed by Brittany for Book Sake.

This was the most fun book I have read in a long time. I have recommended it to all my friends! Ali Wentworth is hysterical and so real, I would love to sit down and drink coffee with her (or a glass of wine or 3). Read this book!

A weak effort.   Give this pass.

I enjoyed Ali's story as it mirrored my life in many aspects, having grown up in D.C. in a family involved in government life.

I never heard of Ali until I saw the review of her new book on Good Morning America so I thought I'd give the first book a try. She jumps around from past to present bringing her jumbled thoughts to print. It might make a great comedy routine but as a book it's tough to follow.
