Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Friends Should Know When They're Not Wanted, Stephan Pastis, of Pearls Before Swine fame, offers a funny take on the dark side of friendship as shown through sappy photographs and sarcastic quotes. Consider the following:

* Friendships are like rainbows. They go away.

* You can't put a price on a friend. Which is too bad. I'd like to sell mine.

* There is no greater joy in life than the simple act of laughing with a friend. Except laughing at him. That rocks.

From friends expanding each other's vocabulary with words like "shmulky shlumperdik," to true friendships lasting a lifetime (like chronic back pain), Pastis emphasizes that friends can sure be good for a laugh.

Synopsis:

This is not your grandmother’s gift book. Sarcastic with a cutting wit, this is Stephan Pastis’s particularly funny take on the anti side of friendship, shown through sarcastic comments juxtaposed with sappy photographs.

Looking for a kind and thoughtful gift to share with a bud?

Well, then you’ve picked the wrong book.

But if you’re looking for an antidote to the sweet and sappy inspirational tripe that clogs gift book shelves, you’ve just hit pay dirt.

Bless your sociopathic heart.
