Product description


"Through it all, [Brosh] 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 ... 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."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The book an author produces after a wildly popular debut has all eyes on it. Fear not, Allie Brosh fans: Solutions and Other Problems is every bit as hilarious and slyly poignant as 2013's Hyperbole and a Half. Starting with the time she got stuck in a bucket at age 3, Brosh's autobiographical comics thrust her into a variety of insane and sometimes heartbreaking scenes. She battles anxiety, depression, annoying neighbors . . . and somehow, it cheers you right up."

"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
