Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Touchstone book."
Summary, etc.:
This follow-up to Hyperbole and a Half "includes humorous stories from [cartoonist] 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; [and] reflections on the absurdity of modern life"--Publisher marketing.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 September #1
    About a third of the way into Brosh's second collection of autobiographical comics accompanied by typed text, she introduces the serious part (it is more serious than the other parts): around the release of her first book, Hyperbole and a Half (2013), a terrifying illness caused Brosh to confront her mortality; shortly after, her younger sister died suddenly. 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. Reckoning with her sister's death leads to pages filled with frames of the two of them as kids, abruptly interrupted by Brosh's realization that she must figure out how to move forward. While it's not without its own grief, the next story is a pet tale—another of Brosh's specialties—introducing a dog so deformed by illness its species became unclear. Like this, 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.
