Hyperbole and a Half 

By Allie Brosh (Simon & Schuster)


She did it. Brosh’s most excellent blog is now in book form. Hyperbole and a Half is hilarious and heart-breaking. Her writing is great, her illustrations fantastic (with herself in a pink shift and a poof of yellow hair). Much loved: stories about her simple dog and helper dog, described with words not usable here. Other beloved topics: Sneaky Hate Spiral, How a Fish Almost Destroyed My Childhood, OMG: the Better Pain Scale! Google that right now. Also: Depression. Brosh’s fans have worried about her from time to time, when she is unable to continue with her blog due to depression. Please stop whatever you’re doing and go to depression.html The book is thick and chock full of “unfortunate situations, flawed coping mechanisms, mayhem, and other things that happened.” Much excellence.
