Waiting on Wednesday LAST GIRLFRIEND ON EARTH by SIMON RICH @LittleBrown
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Release Date: January 22, 2013
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 prophylactic 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.
