The genius new book Haiku for the Single Girl made me laugh out loud. Each page features a haiku and illustration about real life when you’re single.

“A woman never forgets what it’s like to be single,” says the author Beth Griffinhagen, who is a single New Yorker. “In different moments she may feel joyful and free, desperate and without options, amused, and frequently hopeful.” Yes, don’t you agree?
