The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.

Itís a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:

We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you arenít alone in the world.

The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.


Here's my confession for the week: I've become a little obsessed with Martha Stewart's blog. A few days ago, Bojack Horseman character designer and general great artist person Lisa Hanawalt tweeted about it, and that blog has been an open tab in my browser ever since. I cannot get enough pics of her many animals, tales of plush family vacations, and (often kind of hilariously bad) photos of Martha with famous pals. Her lifestyle, comfortably afloat on a sea of money, is endlessly fascinating, and I'm afraid I can't turn away.
