I picked up this book when our store received several copies to display with our "New Bestsellers." Something about the cover- perhaps the hilariously simple yet expressive illustration- drew me in immediately. Brosh lays out her story in such a way that one can't help but feel sympathetic as well as grateful to her for being so absurdly honest. She shares various bits of her life that range from her imaginative early childhood, into her navigation of the adult world. Her illustrations seem kooky and almost crude at first glance, but in fact hold much of the emotion she puts into her story. Whether you are looking for a good (great) laugh (constant guffawing and tears) or a solid memoir, this book is your answer.
Collects autobiographical, illustrated essays and cartoons from the author's popular blog and related new material that humorously and candidly deals with her own idiosyncrasies and battles with depression.
