Let’s face it: most people irritate us. Hexes for the Modern Age is a tongue-in-cheek approach to giving these folks a taste of their own medicine. While inspired by witches’ curses of the past, this is a gift book of 120 funny spells specific to the smartphone-obsessed, overworked, hipster-drenched reality of the present day.
Organized by category—love, work, roommates, traffic, pets, weddings, and so on—each hex is accompanied by an irreverent, Demetri Martin–type line drawing. Spells include: • “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 it’s in the middle of nowhere and there’s no one else around.”
And many, many more!
This little book, with a spell and an illustration on every page, is perfect for anyone who wants a little subtle modern-day revenge.
