She did it. Brosh’s most excellent blog is now in book form. Hyperbole and a Half is hilarious and heart-breaking. Her writing is great, her illustrations fantastic (with herself in a pink shift and a poof of yellow hair). Much loved: stories about her simple dog and helper dog, described with words not usable here. Other beloved topics: Sneaky Hate Spiral, How a Fish Almost Destroyed My Childhood, OMG: the Better Pain Scale! Google that right now. Also: Depression. Brosh’s fans have worried about her from time to time, when she is unable to continue with her blog due to depression. Please stop whatever you’re doing and go to hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.ca/2011/10/adventures-in- depression.html The book is thick and chock full of “unfortunate situations, flawed coping mechanisms, mayhem, and other things that happened.” Much excellence.
