Description

Trapped in an airplane seated next to a chatterbox? Are you hosting a dinner party with people who just won't leave? Katie Vaz has the key to your escape. The Escape Manual for Introverts guides readers through different scenarios with themed chapters ("Friends," "Family," "Strangers," etc.). Each chapter covers a range of situations, from "An invitation to Karaoke Night" to "Group lunchtime." And she offers a number of escapes for each scenario: bringing odoriferous foods to lunch for a while, having a pet (real or imagined) that "requires" frequent check-ins, and even investing in a jetpack. This book features Vaz's full-page illustrated spreads, hand-lettering, and spot illustrations. From the silly to the sincere, Vaz's clever, hilarious escape plans and bizarre excuses speak to the introvert in all of us.

Review quote

"Katie Vaz's charming and delightful illustrations will resonate with introverts who are trying desperately to find a balance between social time and their need for solitude. Whether you struggle with devising the right excuse to leave a crowded party early, or are in dire need of strategies to avoid small talk with the chatty neighbor, Katie's new book has got you covered. It is filled with oh-so-relatable moments accompanied with witty and helpful tips on how to plan your smooth escape. I wish I had this book sooner. It would have saved me a lot of angst from awkward social situations!" (Debbie Tung, author of Quiet Girl in a Noisy World)
