Author: Allie Brosh
Reason for Suggesting Book: Crude and endearing. Poignant and silly. Hilarious and so, so smart! A great collection of comic-essays. There’s something here for everyone- funny and serious, poignant and silly. Allie Brosh is one of those unique writers who has the ability to say what we’re all thinking/feeling, but we don’t really realize we’ve been thinking/feeling it until we see it on the page, and then it suddenly feels like we’ve been searching our whole lives for that one other person who can understand these super unique, but also totally universal feelings. There’s a sense of relief that comes from reading these stories. Turns out we’re all pretty quirky creatures!

#1 New York Times Bestseller

This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features more than fifty percent new content, with ten never-before-seen essays and one wholly revised and expanded piece as well as classics from the website like, “The God of Cake,” “Dogs Don’t Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving,” and her astonishing, “Adventures in Depression,” and “Depression Part Two,” which have been hailed as some of the most insightful meditations on the disease ever written.
