In Friends Should Know When They're Not Wanted, Stephan Pastis, of Pearls Before Swine fame, offers a funny take on the dark side of friendship as shown through sappy photographs and sarcastic quotes. Consider the following: * Friendships are like rainbows. They go away. * You can't put a price on a friend. Which is too bad. I'd like to sell mine. * There is no greater joy in life than the simple act of laughing with a friend. Except laughing at him. That rocks. From friends expanding each other's vocabulary with words like "shmulky shlumperdik," to true friendships lasting a lifetime (like chronic back pain), Pastis emphasizes that friends can sure be good for a laugh.

In 1948, a nineteen-year-old pearl diver's dreams of spending her life combing the waters of Japan’s Inland Sea are shattered when she discovers she has leprosy. By law, she is exiled to an island leprosarium, where she is stripped of her dignity and instructed to forget her past. Her name is erased from her family records, and she is forced to select a new one. To the two thousand patients on the island of Nagashima, she becomes Miss Fuji. Although drugs arrest the course of Miss Fuji's disease, she cannot leave the colony. Instead, she becomes a caretaker to the other patients, and through the example of their courage, she gains insight into the deep wellspring of strength she will need to reclaim her freedom. Written with precision and eloquence, The Pearl Diver is a dazzling meditation on isolation and community, cruelty and compassion. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Pearls gang returns with characteristically misanthropic humor (but with more leather): no self-aggrandizing is too flagrant for Rat, no subject is too erudite for Goat, and no sensory input is too basic for Pig. All topics are fair game for Stephan Pastis and his brass-knuckle punch lines. Comic strip censors, apathetic baristas, and IRS employees are all strongly advised to laugh or get out of the way. Pearls Hogs the Road also features three comic strips illustrated by the legendary Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes, who ended a 19-year hiatus from the comics page to collaborate with Pastis.
