Descripción de editorial
A tongue-in-cheek book of spells that will teach you how to give life’s most irritating people a taste of their own medicine.
“Revenge is a dish best served through these hilarious curses. . . . What are you waiting for? Make your s**t list actionable!” ―Rachel Federman, author of Test Your Dog’s IQ: Genius Edition
Inspired by witches’ curses of the past, Hexes for the Modern Age is an irreverent collection of 120 spells perfectly calibrated to terrorize the smartphone-obsessed, overworked, hipster-drenched denizens of these trying times.
With this delightfully wicked book you’ll learn how to cast spells like:
“May you start turning into your parents way earlier than you expected.”“May all the cords to your electronics become entangled in a massive death coil.”“May a full-size parking space that appears to be open actually be taken up by a tiny Vespa scooter.”“May you always have 3 percent phone battery when you have no idea where you’re going.”And many, many more!
Organized by categories including love, work, roommates, traffic, pets, weddings, and others―Hexes for the Modern Age is the perfect book for anyone who wants to inflict modern-day revenge on all of the worst kinds of people.
“Genius! [This] book provides a busy modern woman like me with quick and easy hexes for every irritating person in my life. I have tried a few of them already and am very pleased with the results.” ―Lydia Ortiz, illustrator for Teen Vogue and cat hoarder
“A book of quirky hexes (some with historical roots and some of [Brains’] own devising) that will please readers who don’t take their hexing too seriously.” —Publishers Weekly
