From the Publisher
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular
blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices.
Touching, absurd, and darkly comic, Allie Brosh's highly
anticipated book Hyperbole and a Half showcases her unique
voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions
with deceptively simple illustrations.
This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features more than
fifty percent new content, with ten never-before-seen essays and
one wholly revised and expanded piece as well as classics from the
website like, "The God of Cake," "Dogs Don't Understand Basic
Concepts Like Moving," and her astonishing, "Adventures in
Depression," and "Depression Part Two," which have been hailed as
some of the most insightful meditations on the disease ever
Brosh's debut marks the launch of a major new American humorist who
will surely make even the biggest scrooge or snob laugh. We dare
you not to.
FROM THE AUTHOR:
This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out
what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to
write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the
book is and also sound vaguely authoritative-like maybe someone who
isn't me wrote it-but I soon discovered that I'm not sneaky enough
to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of
things that are in the book:
Stories about things that happened to me
Stories about things that happened to other people because of
Eight billion dollars*
Stories about dogs
The secret to eternal happiness*
*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

"This book made me laugh, cry, and leak. It was
honest, poignant, and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and
I''m better for having read it. Plus, doggies!"
