  • Hyperbole and a Half

    This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative–like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it–but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:

    Pictures
    Words
    Stories about things that happened to me
    Stories about things that happened to other people because of me
    Eight billion dollars*
    Stories about dogs
    The secret to eternal happiness*

    *These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!
