Description
INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For the first time in seven years, Allie Brosh—beloved author and artist of the extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller Hyperbole and a Half—returns with a new collection of comedic, autobiographical, and illustrated essays. Solutions and Other Problems includes humorous stories from Allie Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless dissection of her own character flaws; incisive essays on grief, loneliness, and powerlessness; as well as reflections on the absurdity of modern life. This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features all-new material with more than 1,600 pieces of art. Solutions and Other Problems marks the return of a beloved American humorist who has "the observational skills of a scientist, the creativity of an artist, and the wit of a comedian" (Bill Gates). Praise for Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half: "Imagine if David Sedaris could draw....Enchanting." —People "One of the best things I've ever read in my life." Marc Maron "Will make you laugh until you sob, even when Brosh describes her struggle with depression." —Entertainment Weekly "I would gladly pay to sit in a room full of people reading this book, merely to share the laughter." —The Philadelphia Inquirer "In a culture that encourages people to carry mental illness as a secret burden....Brosh's bracing honesty is a gift." —Chicago Tribune
