#1 New York Times Bestseller

“Funny and smart as hell” (Bill Gates), Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half showcases her unique voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions with deceptively simple illustrations.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices.

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.

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.

FROM THE AUTHOR:
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:

Pictures
Words
Stories about things that happened to me
Stories about things that happened to other people because of me
Eight billion dollars*
Stories about dogs
The secret to eternal happiness*

*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

Recensione:

Winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Humor Book of the Year
A NPR Best Book of the Year
A Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Memoirs

"Imagine if David Sedaris could draw . . . Enchanting."
(People (4 stars, People Pick))

"My wife, who rarely reads a book published after 1910 and who is difficult to make laugh, wept with pleasure while reading these comic illustrated essays from Ms. Brosh, who runs a popular web comic and blog. I had to find out what the fuss was about. The subjects run from light (cakes, dogs) to dark (the author’s own severe depression), and they foreground offbeat feeling and real intellect. Ms. Brosh’s inquisitive mind won me over, too." (Dwight Garner New York Times)

"Now that the phrase 'LOL' has gotten so overused, it’s hard to imagine that anything really makes people laugh out loud anymore. But the crudely drawn cartoons in Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half, culled from her popular blog and reprinted alongside never-before-seen materials, will make you laugh until you sob, even when Brosh describes her struggle with depression." (Entertainment Weekly)

“Once I started reading “Hyperbole and a Half,” I found myself unable to stopexcept to laugh uproariously.”
(Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.com)

"This is the BOOK OF THE YEAR." (Elizabeth Gilbert)

"Allie Brosh's artwork may look deceptively simple, but her comics are anything but. She is gut-bustingly hilarious, especially when she talks about her ridiculous dogs, but also insightful and phenomenally articulate; her treatise on what it feels like to suffer from depression remains, in all honesty, one of the best things ever produced on the internet (and it's still somehow massively entertaining, too). Get this for the smart people who appreciate humor in your life, and they won't be disappointed." (io9.com)

“Brosh is a connoisseur of the human condition. In her typical self-deprecating and dramatic manner (hence the hyperbole reference), she tells personal stories that name things we can all relate to, including fear, love, depression and hope. Perhaps the most endearing thing about her writing is that she approaches her subject matter from a vulnerable, childlike place, complete with Paintbrush caricatures that have arguably already earned iconic status. . . . Part graphic novel, part confessional, overall delightful.” (Kirkus Reviews)

"This book made me laugh, cry, and leak. It was honest, poignant, and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and I'm better for having read it. Plus, doggies!" (Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess and author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened)

“Here’s a rough analogy: David Sedaris sets out to write a graphic memoir, but decides to use the MS Paint application on his computer rather than hire an artist....[Brosh’s] naïve art plays brilliantly against dark comic themes.” (Michael Humphrey, True/Slant)

Allie Brosh's artwork may look deceptively simple, but her comics are anything but. She is gut-bustingly hilarious, especially when she talks about her ridiculous dogs, but also insightful and phenomenally articulate; her treatise on what it feels like to suffer from depression remains, in all honesty, one of the best things ever produced on the internet (and it's still somehow massively entertaining, too). Get this for the smart people who appreciate humor in your life, and they won't be disappointed." (io9.com)
