Love is really, really difficult. And it's even harder if you're the last woman on earth.
The sketches in Simon Rich's new book are bizarre, funny, and even familiar. Exploring love's many complications and mortifications -losing it, finding it, breaking it, and making it -Rich turns the ordinary into the absurd.
From the invisible man's compulsion to stalk his ex, Sherlock Holmes' only blind spot and how Darwin really formed his theory of evolution, The Last Girlfriend on Earth takes readers for an exhilarating, hilarious ride on the rollercoaster of love.
'The Last Girlfriend On Earth is silly, surreal, sometimes sad and always laugh-out-loud funny. This collection will have you giggling/crying/squirming in recognition, and wondering what exactly Simon Rich has eaten to dream all this stuff up ... pulls off the tough trick of being both heart-warming and hilarious - it's a must-read if you've ever so much as had a crush on someone' Heat 'Pithy, occasionally bonkers' Time Out 'Truly hilarious' Eva Wiseman, Observer
