The third book in my discovery of Sarah Andersen's Sarah Scribbles collection is a must read. All three books are fast reads, too fast in my opinion, so I think I will check them all out again. Her charming drawings of life as a new adult and funny and poignant at the same time. I especially like that she has a cat and a bunny and that the two of them figure highly in her work. -Maeve

"From Funny Or Die senior writer and former artistic director at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre comes a collection of absurdist, hilarious stories and essays on relationships, technology, and contemporary society. A brave archaeologist journeys into a suburban man cave. Leif Eriksson writes Christopher Columbus a long overdue letter. A corporate flack admonishes a room of marijuana sales people to get their revenues up. A young man's penis turns into a lobster. Walt Whitman even teaches a spin class. With humor, originality, and narrative guile, Nate Dern examines man buns, dating apps, Wi-Fi terms and conditions, juicing crazes, vegetarianism, and so much more, all while plumbing his own life and a series of fantastical scenarios for a truth that's both revelatory and beautiful."--Jacket.

My husband checked this book out to read on a flight and he loved it so much, I started reading it as soon as he finished. It is everything I love in 80s horror movies in a book. I will definitely look out for more by this author! -Shawna
