ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR
NPR - THE A.V. CLUB
Written with all the scathing dark humor that is a hallmark of BoJack Horseman, Raphael Bob-Waksberg delivers a fabulously off-beat collection of short stories about love--the best and worst thing in the universe. Featuring: *A young engaged couple forced to deal with interfering relatives dictating the appropriate number of ritual goat sacrifices for their wedding. *A pair of lonely commuters who ride the subway in silence, forever, eternally failing to make that longed-for contact. *A struggling employee at a theme park of U.S. presidents who discovers that love can't be genetically modified. And fifteen more tales of humor, romance, whimsy, cultural commentary, and crushing emotional vulnerability.
