Still Bitter, More Baggage : Going for the Bronze
Sloane Tanen's irresistible chickens are back. Join these fluffy, yellow, surprisingly human chicks - who made their first appearance in Tanen's hit, "Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same" - as they tell a new set of stories in their exquisitely crafted miniature settings. Whether playing the online dating game, trying couples' therapy, dealing with uncooperative children, discovering the melancholy of middle age, dreaming of a better life, or finally grasping the golden (or at least bronze) ring, these ingenious scenes of everyday troubles and triumphs are as painfully recognizable as they are hilarious. Clever, charming, and endlessly entertaining, "Going for the Bronze" is a brilliant follow-up to a wholly unique bestseller.
