Come Celebrate the Publication of A Bathroom Book with Joe Pera and Joe Bennett!

Joe Pera of Joe Pera Talks With You (Adult Swim), has been lauded for his warmhearted comedic stylings, and has been on Comedians to Watch lists from New York MagazinePaste, Esquire, and more. Now, together with illustrator Joe Bennett, he’s excited to present his first book! A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing but Using the Bathroom as an Escape combines Joe Pera’s cozy comedy and Joe Bennett’s darkly playful illustrations, creating a funny and sincere guide to regaining calm and confidence when you’re hiding in the bathroom from the world’s stresses.

Join Pera and Bennett in a special virtual conversation to celebrate the book’s launch Thursday, November 18, 7:00 PM EST.  Joe and Joe will be signing an exclusive bookplate for the first 100 books sold through each of our bookstore partners.

Anderson’s Bookshop | Off the Beaten Path Bookstore | Fountain Bookstore | Tattered Cover

The cozy comedy of Joe Pera meets the darkly playful illustrations of Joe Bennett in A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing But Using the Bathroom as an Escape, a funny, warm, and sincere guide to regaining calm and confidence when you’re hiding in the bathroom.

Joe Pera goes to the bathroom a lot. And his friend, Joe Bennett, does too. They both have small bladders but more often it’s just to get a moment of quiet, a break from work, or because it’s the only way they know how to politely end conversations.

So they created a functional meditative guide to help people who suffer from social anxiety and deal with it in this very particular way. Although, it’s a comedic book, the goal is to help these readers:

  1.  Relax
  2. Recharge
  3. Rejoin the world outside of the bathroom

It’s also fun entertainment for people simply hiding in the bathroom to avoid doing work.

A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing But Using the Bathroom as an Escape will be waiting in the bathroom like a beacon for anxious readers looking to feel calm, confident, and less alone.

A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing but Using the Bathroom as an Escape will be available on November 16th, 2021.
