Whether you've just experienced a break up or are in a committed relationship, you need this book on your shelf. Through simple, eloquent illustrations and playfully poignant messages, artist Jason Logan examines what it means to love and lose in a series of words and pictures that will strike a chord with everyone. He describes the warning signs, the false starts, the split itself, the wallowing period, the grey area, the setbacks and angry dating. From how to pack when storming out, to managing the first home visit and negotiating that awkward party, this is a break-up book like no other. Seasonal games for the lonely (try throwing a snowball at yourself) in the company of sympathetic pets (who does the dog really belong to?) offer distraction, a touch of melancholy, and finally a way to see through the tears. Because although it may feel like the end, breaking up is only the beginning.
