"... Comics So Relatable it Hurts: (BuzzFeed) "Hillarious illustrations that sum up the bonds of femaie friendship ... Sarah Andersen is known for capturing the good, the bad, and the downright hilarious parts of being a lady. (In) Big Mushy Happy Lump, she hits the nail on the head when it comes to female friendship." (Huffington Post) "You've probably seen Sarah Andersen's comics ... and you probably feel like Sarah Andersen has the uncanny ability to read your mind and then draw doodles of all your anxieties. Either way, her comics are adorably awkward, and Big Mushy Happy Lump is a delightful collection ..." (Bustle) Succinct, easily disseminated odes to the quotidian struggles of millennial life are common in cartooning, but Andersen has perfectedand, in fact, elevatedthis form. Here is work that has been sharpened to a fine point: smart, warm, cutting, and clever. This volume is a witty comfort from beginning to end. (Starred Review) (Publishers Weekly)
