Book Overview
From the creator and executive producer of the beloved and universally acclaimed television series, BoJack Horseman , a fabulously off-beat collection of short stories about love--the best and worst thing in the universe. Written with all the scathing dark humor that is a hallmark of BoJack Horseman , Raphael Bob-Waksberg's stories will make readers laugh, weep, and shiver in uncomfortably delicious recognition. In A Most Blessed and Auspicious Occasion, a young couple planning a wedding is forced to deal with interfering relatives dictating the appropriate number of ritual goat sacrifices. Missed Connection - m4w is the tragicomic tale of a pair of lonely commuters eternally failing to make that longed-for contact. The members of a rock band in Up-and-Comers discover they suddenly have superpowers--but only when they're drunk. And in The Serial Monogamist's Guide to Important New York City Landmarks, a woman maps her history of romantic failures based on the places she and her significant others visited together. Equally at home with the surreal and the painfully relatable (or both at once), Bob-Waksberg delivers a killer combination of humor, romance, whimsy, cultural commentary, and crushing emotional vulnerability. The resulting collection is a punchy, perfect bloody valentine.
