"No one sums up the hilarity, devastation and bizarreness of life
quite like comic artist and blogger Allie Brosh. Her long-awaited
follow-up to Hyperbole and a Half couldn't have come at a better
time than this absurd and awful year. From stories about mystery
poop and a dandelion-fearing child to the struggle for
self-acceptance and the heartbreaking loss of her sister, it's a
road trip through a brilliant and inquisitive mind, driven by
colorful illustrations, sharp wit and refreshing honesty. And if
you're just looking for laughs, Brosh has elevated the funny pet
story to a literal art form."
"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."
"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."
