Hyperbole and a Half

A non-linear collection of tales depicting memorable moments from Allie Brosh’s life, this book features commentary on the human condition through the retelling of the author’s struggles and complex internal conflicts with highly engaging stories and illustrations. A humorous and unique memoir, “Hyperbole and a Half,” is suitable for senior-level students and lends itself well as a literature circle option or for the entire class to engage with. As Brosh uses humour to address serious topics such as mental health, the text may be appropriate in senior elective courses to inspire discussions about the subject.
