"Brosh alternates sorrow with levity--funny childhood stories, more
animal tales, and general musings on life and its lack of meaning
or fairness--with grace that feels true to life."
"Gut-busting . . . . Like a millennial James Thurber, 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. . . This achingly accurate and consistently hilarious comic memoir finds Brosh moving forward and becoming a stronger, braver storyteller page by page."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Through it all, she 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. VERDICT Another standout from Brosh that is both heartening and heartbreaking."
--Library Journal, Starred Review
"Brosh's storytelling is so distinctive and compelling it's like suddenly running in to a friend you feared was lost forever . . . [She] reliably channels the simplicity of a child or the innocence of an animal and tells raucous, heartbreaking stories that reflect the hidden parts of us all . . . For Brosh's millions of fans, this is well worth the wait."
