Other Editions of This Title:
Paperback, Vietnamese (6/25/2018)
Sarah Andersen's hugely popular, world-famous Sarah's Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals.
In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.
Praise For Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection…
"Hillarious illustrations that sum up the bonds of femaie friendship ... Sarah Andersen is known for capturing the good, the bad, and the downright hilarious parts of being a lady. (In) Big Mushy Happy Lump, she hits the nail on the head when it comes to female friendship." (Huffington Post)
"You've probably seen Sarah Andersen's comics ... and you probably feel like Sarah Andersen has the uncanny ability to read your mind and then draw doodles of all your anxieties. Either way, her comics are adorably awkward, and Big Mushy Happy Lump is a delightful collection ..." (Bustle)
“Succinct, easily disseminated odes to the quotidian struggles of millennial life are common in cartooning, but Andersen has perfected—and, in fact, elevated—this form. … Here is work that has been sharpened to a fine point: smart, warm, cutting, and clever. This volume is a witty comfort from beginning to end.” (Starred Review)
