Fresh from the success of Normal Is Just a Setting on the Dryer, award-winning writer Adair Lara returns with more heartfelt wisdom for, and by, real people. From wry advice on life's daily challenges: "If you wonder if your pants are too short, they are," to pithy confirmation on the good things in life: "Orange food rarely disappoints," and rife with aphorisms more honest than your friends: "No trip planned after the third bottle of pinot noir will ever happen. Or should happen," Lara's sparkling second collection is sure to enlighten, affirm, and amuse. In a gifty, hardcover formatfeaturing Roxanna Bikadoroff's wry illustrations, The Bigger the Sign is the perfect gift for anyone in need of a lift.
We could all use some advice now and then. When the self-help books just aren't helping, it's time to call in the experts: real people. San Francisco Chronicle columnist Adair Lara polled her readers for life lessons learned through experience, receiving thousands of heartfelt and irreverent responses. The best are compiled here in over 200 bits of priceless counsel. With witty illustrations by Roxanna Bikadoroff, this handy little volume is filled with humor, unconventional insights, and the kind of common wisdom that will always bear repeating.
