Nick G. gives the same sage, "duh" advice in his cartoons that it takes Carolyn Hax multiple paragraphs and numerous "foreheads to keyboard" to give.
Personally, I wish he'd written it years ago, possibly saving me years of relationship angst. I never quite worded it so succinctly but I can see clearly now the rain is gone...or wait, wait I meant to say, I can see clearly now after seeing myself in his cartoons how I "strung myself along" for 7-ish years with a non-committal guy who I (wrongly of course) convinced myself was my future husband (see the chapter entitled: "The Bastard Files." )
Disclaimer, Nick was a few years behind me in high school and was friends w/ my little brother. He debuted the book with an art show in our hometown of Falls Church last week. But it's not just me. My girlfriends who joined me at the book signing also had their own ah-ha moments. One, now single after a 30 year mixed marriage said she had to stop herself from getting a framed print (of Nick's cartoon of plaid vs. striped zebras) to send her ex. " Arrgh! See?! After all we've been through, I STILL want to send him presents!"
My friend Bunny laughed at the one of the one of the bunny sitting at the bar, saying, "I finally figured it out. I'm prey!Read more ›
I bought two copies, and even got one signed and personally inscribed through Nick's website: [...].
I see that there are a few 1 star reviews. Clearly those people have not read the book. Or the cartoons were so "Uncomfortably True," those without a sense of humor did not know what to do with themselves. What a shame. Don't let them turn you away, YOU clearly have excellent taste.
A person signing a book doesn't make me smile or frown (or generally make me want to wait in line), but I picked up a book and started flipping through it. But, hey, actually, I ended up buying the book because I felt guilty for flipping through it for so long (especially since everyone there had one or two copies in hand... waiting for the author/artist to sign).
Eventually I had to move on... yes, with a paid for book.
Guess what? The damn thing made me laugh. Some pages made me laugh hard. Some a solid chuckle. Some a good smile. Too many pages gave me a twang of recognition of myself or life itself. There is some subtle stuff going on in a good number of the drawings, too. I sort of hesitate to call this a book of cartoons, but I guess that's what they're called. Cartoons, drawings, whatever... they seem to each tell a story of sorts.
Anyway, I came on line to see if it was just me who liked it... looks like there are a few others, too.
It's an easy bet that it's the type of book you can leave out on a table or kitchen counter and people will pick it up and start looking at the drawings... and you will hear chuckles and snorts of laughter. No doubt about it. If you're having a party, try it... you'll see. It works. Someone will be looking at it and say, "Hey, come here, look at this."
For what it is, it definitely works.
