The Last Girlfriend on Earth

January 2013 Hardcover

Simon Rich, The Last Girlfriend on Earth: And Other Love Stories

978-0-316-21939-6, $19.99

DESCRIPTION

In “Center of the Universe,” God struggles to balance the demands of his career with the needs of his long-term girlfriend. In “Magical Mr. Goat,” a young girl’s imaginary friend yearns to become “more than friends.” In “Unprotected,” an unused condom recalls his years spent trapped inside a teen boy’s wallet. The stories in Simon Rich’s new book are bizarre, funny, and yet…relatable. Rich explores love’s many complications-losing it, finding it, breaking it, and making it-and turns the ordinary into the absurd. With razor-sharp humor and illustrations, and just in time for Valentine’s Day, Rich takes readers for an exhilarating, hilarious ride on the rollercoaster of love.
