I'm going to be honest here: this is my favorite book in the entire store. It’s morbid and sad and absolutely hilarious. Accompanied by adorably cartoonish illustrations, this tiny book explores grief, death and loneliness, all with a large serving of irony. Looking for the perfect gift for that passive-aggressive roommate, person you’re sort of seeing, or too-serious coworker? Look no further! This book is certain to bring a smile to even the most dour face.

What’s the only thing funnier than reading Tina Fey’s new memoir? Listening to Tina Fey read Bossypants! Kick back to hear the inimitable Tina Fey be Tina Fey—with her pitch-perfect deliveries, unedited clips from SNL and side-splitting impressions of the Second City improv troupe and 30 Rock cast and crew. The Bossypants audiobook feels like a glorious mix of top-notch stand-up comedy and after-work gabfest with your wickedly smart, hilarious best friend. I can attest that it will fill hours of highway driving with laughter and delight, but don’t wait for your next road trip to enjoy it!
Looking at this list of contributors, your mind is probably whirring, “Is this funny? What advice should I take from Weird Al? Why are there two introductions? Is this even necessary?” The answers are: Yes, marriage, existential buffoonery, and absolutely. This humorous little book lets us reflect on the mess of human interaction without exhausting our sanity. These people have thrown themselves over the brink so you don’t have to. Read, laugh, be surprised, and get acquainted with the wonderful magazine The Believer (sold right here in the store!)
