A book of stories and illustrations about the lovely strangeness of life.

BACK ALREADY? is one part This American Life and one part Joseph Campbell, but with drawings.

This is a book of stories and illustrations about the lovely strangeness of life. Stories about the comedy of anxiety, the gut twisting strain of relationships, and the wonderful self deception and blind optimism of the human spirit. 

This book explores the intersection of American mythology and everyday life. There are stories that happened to me and are true, and there are also made up stories that are true too... but in a different way.

The story below is one of the true ones that really happened. It takes a minute to read through, and I know reading in this format is not ideal, but I think you'll dig it.
