Synopses & Reviews
For the first time in seven years, Allie Brosh — beloved author and artist of the extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller Hyperbole and a Half — returns with a new collection of comedic, autobiographical, and illustrated essays.
Solutions and Other Problems includes humorous stories from Allie
Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless
dissection of her own character flaws; incisive essays on grief,
loneliness, and powerlessness; as well as reflections on the absurdity
of modern life.
This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features all-new material with more than 1,600 pieces of art.
Solutions and Other Problems marks the return of a beloved
American humorist who has "the observational skills of a scientist, the
creativity of an artist, and the wit of a comedian" (Bill Gates).
"Brosh's storytelling is so
distinctive and compelling it's like suddenly running in to a friend you
feared was lost forever....For Brosh's
millions of fans, this is well worth the wait."
"Through it all, [Brosh] is
refreshingly vulnerable and honest. In trying to overcome her
weaknesses, by spending a night alone in the woods, she reminds us that
it's okay not to be okay."
Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Gut-busting....Brosh has a knack for seeding a small, choice
detail that snowballs into existential chaos....[Her] spidery and
demented digital portraits, a visual expression of fun-house mirror
anxiety, fits her material perfectly."
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
