MOURN LIKE A WINNER

When it comes to grief, there's no room for second best. Sure, there are other guidebooks aimed at helping you cope with the emotional and practical challenges of losing a loved one. None, however, have been written by a comedy writer whose "therapeutic training" went no further than an undergraduate degree in psychology, and who lived through this terrible experience and emerged intact enough to write a bunch of jokes about it. What The Daily Show's America (The Book) was to civics and The Onion's Our Dumb Century was to the history of the twentieth century, Jason Roeder's hilarious (and often moving) Griefstrike is to death, mourning, and somehow getting on with your life.
Jason Roeder is a former senior editor and senior writer at The Onion, former digital director for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and a former writer/producer for adultswim.com as well as a contributor to The New Yorker and McSweeney's Internet Tendency. He is the author of the satirical self-help manual Oh, the Humanity! A Gentle Guide To Social Interaction For The Feeble Young Introvert and coauthor of the sex manual parody Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk, which Stephen Colbert said was "the perfect coffee table book for people with sexually inadequate houseguests" and Publishers Weekly described in a starred review as a "hilarious and addictive page-turner." He currently lives in Los Angeles and can also be found on Twitter at @jasonroeder.
