It doesn't matter if you're a robot, a caveman, or an alien from outer space: sooner or later, some girl's going to break your heart. And Simon Rich is going to write about it.

Love is really, really difficult. And it's even harder if you're the last woman on earth.

The sketches in Simon Rich's new book are bizarre, funny, and even familiar. Exploring love's many complications and mortifications -losing it, finding it, breaking it, and making it -Rich turns the ordinary into the absurd.

From the invisible man's compulsion to stalk his ex, Sherlock Holmes' only blind spot and how Darwin really formed his theory of evolution, The Last Girlfriend on Earth takes readers for an exhilarating, hilarious ride on the rollercoaster of love.
