Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What if animals were as neurotic as we are?

If you've ever eavesdropped on people's conversations, had heart-to- hearts with friends or family, or even just paid attention to the thoughts bouncing around in your own head, you'll undoubtedly find that we humans have, well, issues. In a stroke of cruel genius, internationally exhibited artist Romeo Alaeff hilariously pairs overheard snippets from human conversation with gorgeously detailed drawings of animals that don't deserve to be burdened with our existential angst and neuroses.

Simple observation and science prove that animals have a wide range of emotions and instincts, but it's sickly funny and also heartbreaking to imagine them having ones as insane as ours! I'll Be Dead by the Time You Read This is the perfect cup of dark, bitter tea for the countless readers who made the Bunny Suicides books a bestselling phenomenon.
