We’re Going to Need More Wine

In this moving collection of essays, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about beauty, sexuality, race, gender, and womanhood. Outrageous and told with her unique wit, Union tackles bullying, beauty standards, growing up in white suburbia, feeling out of place with her own black relatives in her native Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents. Genuine and wise, in these personal essays Union bravely lays herself bare and uncovers a complex and courageous life of self-doubt, self-discovery, incredible poise and brutal honesty.
