I chanced upon Daniel Handler’s Why We Broke Up while I was in search for 3M’s Magic Tape Doughnut Dispenser… Written as one long letter from Min Green to Ed Slaterton, the book goes into different kinds of emotions on why their relationship ended. Along with the letter, Min gives Ed a box of things she collected over the course of their relationship.
Even though the title, spoke for what was going to happen, it still caught my attention. Besides the “falling head-over-heels even though you’re just going to get your heart crashed” feeling that this book imparts, it also features Maria Kalman’s full-color illustrations that are so lovely.
❝I hadn’t even been looking, not for you, and now you were my heart’s desire.❞ – Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up
