11,002 Things to be Miserable About: Satirical Not-So-HappyBook

by Lia Romeo

11,002 Things to be Miserable About: Satirical Not-So-HappyBook Synopsis

There's a warm and fuzzy little book entitled 14,000 Things to Be Happy About which has sold over a million copies. It's basically a long list of things to brighten your day like snuggly kittens and flaky pie crust. That's great, but what about a satirical companion volume for the not-so-optimistic set? Here it is. 11,002 Things to Be Miserable About is a list of all the reasons not to wake up in the morning. Ironically enough, when you put all of them under one cover, it's actually very funny. This decidedly absurd stream of consciousness is perfect for sardonic and disaffected youth, for people seeking gifts for Traumatic Event Birthdays (like 21, 25, 30, 40, and, well, anything after 40) and for anyone else with an offbeat sense of humour. Enjoy.
