This messy, painful, and hilarious collection of stories and illustrations is an exhilarating ride on the rollercoaster of love.
In these thirty short, sharp, ingenious stories, Simon Rich conjures up some unforgettable romances. An unused prophylactic describes life inside a teenage boy's wallet; God juggles the demands of his needy girlfriend with the looming deadline for Earth's creation; and a lovestruck Sherlock Holmes ignores all the clues that his girlfriend's been cheating on him.
As enchanting, sweet, and absurd as love itself, these stories are Simon Rich's valentine to readers, an irresistible collection of delights. All that's missing is the heart-shaped box.
"No matter how zany things get, there's an endearing simplicity at the heart of these inventive tales.... Love doesn't always conquer all, but these stories suggest Rich thinks it certainly ought to." -- Daily Beast
"One of the funniest books you'll read this year." -- Publishers Weekly
