Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory: Stories (Knopf Publishing Group)

From the creator and executive producer of the beloved and universally acclaimed television series BoJack Horseman, a fabulously off-beat collection of short stories about love--the best and worst thing in the universe.

Written with all the scathing dark humor that is a hallmark of BoJack Horseman, Raphael Bob-Waksberg's stories will make readers laugh, weep, and shiver in uncomfortably delicious recognition. In "A Most Blessed and Auspicious Occasion," a young couple planning a wedding is forced to deal with interfering relatives dictating the appropriate number of ritual goat sacrifices. "Missed Connection--m4w" is the tragicomic tale of a pair of lonely commuters eternally failing to make that longed-for contact. The members of a rock band in "Up-and-Comers" discover they suddenly have superpowers--but only when they're drunk. And in "The Serial Monogamist's Guide to Important New York City Landmarks," a woman maps her history of romantic failures based on the places she and her significant others visited together.

Equally at home with the surreal and the painfully relatable (or both at once), Bob-Waksberg delivers a killer combination of humor, romance, whimsy, cultural commentary, and crushing emotional vulnerability. The resulting collection is a punchy, perfect bloody valentine.

Raphael Bob-Waksberg is the creator and executive producer of the Netflix series BoJack Horseman. This is his first book.

Kara Brown is a writer, speaker and co-host of Crooked Media's pop culture podcast, Keep It!. Television credits include Freeform's Grown-Ish and The CW's In The Dark. Previously, she was a senior writer at Jezebel where she covered pop culture, race and television. Her work has appeared in Time Magazine, Marie Claire, Glamour, Elle, Nylon Magazine and The Fader. In 2018 she was named to Forbes Magazine's 30 Under 30 in Hollywood and Entertainment.
