    Joshua Mohr: IMG Your Imagination, Your Fingerprint



    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons about You Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows the only thing more painful than relationships is not having them — or is it the other way around? Whatever, says author and cartoonist Nick Galifianakis. In his first book, If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You, he makes the case that either way, the only recourse is to embrace our frailties and laugh.

Taken from Carolyn Hax's nationally syndicated advice column, this compilation spins the pain of dating, mothers-in-law, beneficial friends and more into... the pain of self-recognition. The intricately drawn pen-and-ink panels and pointed captions explore some of life's most uncomfortable truths, exposing the humanity in our mistakes, the underbelly of our triumphs and the sheer heroism of trying and trying again.

Throughout this character study of men and women (and the dogs who love them), Galifianakis mines our hopes and insecurities for a unifying truth: If we can't laugh at ourselves, he'll do it for us.

"Nick snuck me into my first comedy club when I was only a back-acned teenager. The back acne went away but the comedy stuck. I know that last sentence sounds like a lyric from a Joan Baez song, but trust me, it's original." Zach Galifianakis, from the foreword

"Nick's cartoons are funny, witty, and smart. But what makes them so special are how universal and true they are, making the laughs they bring all the more poignant. Relationships, in all their glory, have never been captured quite so succinctly and with such charm." Amy B. Harris, writer/producer for Sex and the City

"Nick Galifianakis understands relationships unbelievably well, for a guy. My guess is he actually menstruates." Gene Weingarten, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Washington Post humor columnist

Synopsis:

A collection of high-brow, pen and ink cartoons from the syndicated column Tell Me About It. The column runs 7 days a week in 200+ newspapers. This collection will feature the larger, captioned stand-alone type cartoons, and will be categorized according to themes, including parenting and friendship.

Synopsis:

With searing observations on life, love, relationships, and pet camaraderie, If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute features Galifianakis's intricate black-and-white illustration style paired with his biting wit and a pointed message: If we can't laugh at ourselves, he'll do it for us.

Perhaps you recognize Nick Galifianakis's last name? Cartoonist Nick Galifianakis is the real-life cousin of the runaway Hangover star Zach Galifianakis, who provides the introduction to Nick's If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute — a collection of more than 200 cartoon panels.

Synopsis:

Nick Galifianakis provides a cynical, yet hilarious take on the ups and downs of love, relationships and pets. Zach Galifianakis, start of The Hangover, will provide the foreword.
