In a short blurb? We talk books.
It was an exciting day at the office yesterday because Daniel Handler (you may know him as Lemony Snicket) and Maira Kalman came in! Without further ado, I present to you my signed copy of…
A quick sypnosis of Why We Broke Up (courtesy of Goodreads):
Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.
Here’s a fun link…
The Why We Broke Up Project is a Tumblr that lets everyone share their own heart wrenching tale of woe. Got a story to contribute? Submit the reason why YOU broke up!
Do you live in New York City? There’s two ways you can catch Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman! The duo will be at Barnes and Noble in Union Square TONIGHT and at Word in Brooklyn TOMORROW. They are great, entertaining, and I highly recommend you get to the event if you can.
