‘Hyperbole and a Half’ Gets Book Site

Artist and author Allie Brosh has created a separate book site for her upcoming collection, giving readers a peek at her new book (image embedded above).

Brosh will publish Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened on October 29th. In May, Brosh returned to her site for the first time since 2011 with an illustrated essay about depression. Here’s more about the new book site:

I wrote a book. It was really, really hard. But it’s done! (Well, the manuscript is done). I made this page so that I could post things about my book without having to post them on my blog. People come to my blog to read blog posts, not to watch me promote my book, and I want to respect that. By doing things this way, the people who are interested in seeing book things can choose to come here and the people who don’t want to see anything promotion-related don’t have to see it … Anyway, I have been told that I need to promote my book, so I’m going to at least try to make it interesting and/or fun. At the very least, I’m going to try to make it not obnoxious.

Until today, we haven’t seen a glimpse of the book. The Amazon page for Brosh’s book currently features this image:

 

Full Disclosure: This GalleyCat editor will publish a book with Touchstone, Brosh’s publisher.
