FROM THE PUBLISHER:<br />Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices.<br /> <br />Touching, absurd, and darkly comic, Allie Brosh’s highly anticipated book <i>Hyperbole and a Half </i>showcases her unique voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions with deceptively simple illustrations.<br /> <br />This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features more than fifty percent new content, with ten never-before-seen essays and one wholly revised and expanded piece as well as classics from the website like, “The God of Cake,” “Dogs Don’t Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving,” and her astonishing, “Adventures in Depression,” and “Depression Part Two,” which have been hailed as some of the most insightful meditations on the disease ever written.<br /> <br />Brosh’s debut marks the launch of a major new American humorist who will surely make even the biggest scrooge or snob laugh. We dare you not to.<br /> <br />FROM THE AUTHOR:<br />This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative—like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it—but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:<br /><br />Pictures<br />Words<br />Stories about things that happened to me<br />Stories about things that happened to other people because of me<br />Eight billion dollars*<br />Stories about dogs<br />The secret to eternal happiness*<br /><br />*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

<b><b><b>Instant <i>New York Times</i> bestseller · </b></b>Hilarious stories and advice about the ups and downs of growing up, from a popular YouTube artist and storyteller.</b><br /><br />Like any shy teen turned young adult, YouTube star James Rallison ("The Odd 1s Out") is used to being on the outside looking in. He wasn't partying in high school or winning football games like his older brother. Instead, he posted comics on the Internet. Now, he's ready to share his hard-earned advice from his 21 years of life in the funny, relatable voice his fans love. <br /><br />In this illustrated collection, Rallison tells his own stories of growing up as the "odd one out": in art class with his twin sister (she was more talented), in the middle school locker room, and up to one strange year of college (he dropped out). Each story is filled with the little lessons he picked up along the way, serious and otherwise, like: <br /><br />  <b>*</b>  How to be cool (in seventh grade)<br />  <b>*</b>  Why it's OK to be second-best at something, and<br />  <b>*</b>  How to survive your first, confidence-killing job interviews <br /><br />Filled with fan-favorite comics and never-before-seen material, this tongue-in-cheek take on some of the weirdest, funniest parts of life is perfect for both avid followers and new converts.

James Thurber, whimsical fantasist and deadpan chronicler of everyday absurdities, brought American humor into the 20th century. His comic persona, a modern citydweller whose zaniest flights of free association are tinged with anxiety, remains hilarious, subtly disturbing, and instantly recognizable. Here, in over 1000 pages, editor Garrison Keillor presents the best and most extensive collection ever assembled. Over 100 pieces include “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “The Catbird Seat,” the brilliantly satirical <i>Fables for Our Time</i>, the classic <i>My Life and Hard Times</i>, and the best of <i>The Owl in the Attic</i>, <i>Let Your Mind Alone!</i>, <i>My World—And Welcome to It</i>, and the other famous books. Plus 500 wonderful drawings, including <i>The Seal in the Bedroom</i> and celebrated sequences like “The Masculine Approach” and “The War Between Men and Women.” Rounding out the volume is a selection from <i>The Years with Ross</i>, a memoir of the <i>New Yorker</i> publisher, and a number of wonderful early pieces never collected by Thurber.<br /><br /><b>LIBRARY OF AMERICA </b>is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation’s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America’s best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

<p>How do you poke fun at a man who’s so absurd he practically satirizes himself? Even two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist Mike Luckovich admits it’s been a challenge covering the Cheeto-in-Chief in his internationally syndicated political cartoons. But Mike rose to the challenge, pulling no punches and stripping down Trump and his cronies with his signature wit and style. </p><br /><p>Covering Trump’s antics from the 2016 election through to the Mueller investigation, the cartoons in <i>A Very Stable Genius</i> tackle key moments in Trump’s political career, offering scathing insights on everything from his disastrous track record with women to his revolving-door cabinet to his suspiciously intimate relationship with a certain Russian leader. Woven through with searing commentary and personal anecdotes, Mike’s cartoons will shock and delight you, making you think as much as they make you laugh — when you’re not too busy being terrified.</p>
