Unhappiness stalks us all, from that first painful slap in the delivery room to the final sorrow of a graveside service. Rather than attempt to alleviate or rise above life's trauma, the Crap Hound Big Book of Unhappiness instead enthusiastically catalogues popular culture s attempts to illustrate, channel and finally exploit our anxieties. Between a brief introduction and the end credits, the Crap Hound Big Book of Unhappiness is pure vintage 20th century imagery, carefully collected from old catalogues, advertising, obscure books, and found ephemera.

He is at his funniest, though, when he goes beyond the zone of plausibility and sends up today's smug mores. -- The Guardian Tejaratchi's book is dangerous to open if you're in a place where you're not supposed to laugh really hard or there are children. -- New Yorker
