Comics creator Fred Chao put together a small collection of humorous short stories from his love life.

Starting off as comical reflections of elementary school crushes, house party hook-ups, and first relationships, these stories delve into themes of the responsibilities that come with age, inevitable life changes, nostalgia, and home.

New York Times contributing reviewer Douglas Wolk said of this book, "These stories about the places art and life intersect, and where they fly past each other, are honed down to details so sharp they pierce."

What people are saying about This Love So Brief:

"Each of Fred Chao's stories are detailed without being busy, and concise while still being comprehensive. This Love So Brief showcases two of his three of his greatest talents: his gorgeous artwork and his beautiful storytelling. His third great talent, a stellar Busta Rhymes impersonation, must be experienced in person." (Opus Moreschi, head writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report)

"These stories about the places where art and life intersect, and the places where they fly past each other, are honed down to details so sharp they pierce." (Douglas Walk, author of Reading Comics and reviewers for The New York Times and The Believer)

"Chao shares a few tales that will both engage and delight readers." (Comics Grinder)
