IN A DAZE WORK by Siobhán Gallagher
In a Daze Work: a Pick-Your-Path Journey Through the Daily Grind is an illustrated choose-your-own-adventure book for grownups that takes place throughout an average day. Bringing humor and sly self-reflection to the humdrum details of adulthood, this relatable visual journey will help you find the extraordinary (or at least hilarious) moments in any day of the week.
