Anonymous break up stories from men and women, old and young, serious and silly and the cartoons that inspired them. Author and artist Hilary Campbell turns the painful into the hilarious, validating emotions from forgotten middle school tragedies to relationships that ended only hours ago.
Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and cartoonist. Her films have won top prizes at Slamdance, SF IndieFest, and more. She was the co-illustrator of Jessica Bennett’s critically acclaimed Feminist Fight Club. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, But You Could've Done Better is her first book of cartoons.
what i liked
- It’s a funny read! I found myself laughing out loud at the different stories. Some of the breakups are just so weird and humorous that I can’t help myself. My favorite was one story about a couple that broke up and then this guy threw a game boy at the girl and ran off. Like what?? And I’m pretty sure they weren’t that young!
- There are hilarious drawings that go along with every story. They really add to each breakup story and are funny to look at.
- There’s even an email at the end of the book where you can submit your own breakup stories. It gives me hope that there will be a volume 2 of the book.
what i disliked
- It was such a fast read! I consider this partly what I liked about it, but at the same time, I wish there was more! I kept trying to swipe forward on my Kindle but then there wasn’t anything else.
