From the author of Hyperbole and a Half, Solutions and Other Problems includes stories from Allie Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless dissection of her own character flaws; essays on grief, loneliness, and powerlessness; as well as reflections on the absurdity of modern life.
Illustrated in Brosh’s wobbly, bright, extra-simplified digital drawings, these stories define the book’s significant emotional core and lend perspective to the lighter and varied fare that surrounds them ... Brosh alternates sorrow with levity—funny childhood stories, more animal tales, and general musings on life and its lack of meaning or fairness—with grace that feels true to life.
Thankfully, Brosh’s storytelling is so distinctive and compelling it’s like suddenly running in to a friend you feared was lost forever ... The existential kaleidoscope occasionally gets trippy, but the majority of the book is nourishing and warmly satisfying. For Brosh’s millions of fans, this is well worth the wait.
