Hilarious stories about life's mishaps from the creator of the immensely popular blog 'Hyperbole and a Half'.

Fully illustrated with over 50% new material. Hyperbole and A Half is a blog written by a 20-something American girl called Allie Brosh. She tells fantastically funny, wise stories about the mishaps of her everyday life, with titles like 'Why Dogs Don't Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving' and 'The God of Cake'.

She accompanies these with naive drawings using Paint on her PC. Brosh's website receives millions of visitors a month and hundreds of thousands per day. Now her full-colour debut book chronicles the many "learning experiences" Brosh has endured as a result of her own character flaws.

It includes stories about her rambunctious childhood; the highs and mostly lows of owning a mentally challenged dog; and a moving and darkly comic account of her struggles with depression. Poignant and uproarious - think Cyanide and Happiness but with story-lines, cake and dogs.

"A hilarious collection" * Mashable *

"Fantastic, hilarious, emotional" * Mayaland *

"You may have to push this book away for fear you'll hurt yourself laughing, but its wisdom and humanity - no hyperbole here - are too magnetic to keep at bay for long" -- Mary Pols * People Magazine *

"Honest, poignant and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and I'm better for having read it. Plus, doggies!" * Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess *

This is a collection of Allie’s commentary on dogs, cake, scenes from childhood and an exploration of the weird goings on of the mind.

Accompanied by simple, surprisingly expressive drawings, these little stories are... More
