Demetri Martin

This is A Book

Grand Central/Hachette


Comedy Central host Demetri Martin’s This is A Book is a hilarious foray into prose comedy—including essays, short stories, and Martin’s signature drawings, absurdities, and one-liners.  “This book embodies the essence of Demetri’s comedy to perfection. Silly but incredibly smart,” says Will Ferrell.  Conan O’Brien adds, “If I could draw a graph explaining how funny and original Demetri is, I would.  But I don’t do that.  Demetri does that.”

Allie Brosh

Hyperbole and a Half

Touchstone/Simon & Schuster


Allie Brosh is the mind behind the enormously popular blog Hyperbole and a Half, which receives millions of unique visitors a month. This amalgamation of new material and reader favorites from Brosh's blog includes stories about her rambunctious childhood; the highs and mostly lows of owning a smart, neurotic dog and a mentally challenged one; and moving, honest, and darkly comic essays tackling her struggles with depression and anxiety, among other anecdotes from Brosh's life.

Tarcher Perigee

On the heels of his internationally successful first book, 1 Page at a Time, artist and author Adam J. Kurtz delivers another intimate and engaging journal.
