About the Book.
Why do things in moderation when you can just do everything? All it takes is a can-do attitude, stubborn pride in never admitting you might be over your head, and a willingness to lose sleep and all sense of time and space.
Cartoonist Dami Lee knows the modern pressures to do everything, and do it well―from staying current on cutting edge pop culture, social media, and the meme-of-the-moment, to getting a mountain of work done while being mindful of diet, exercise, and time outdoors. In her new book, Be Everything at Once she explores the themes that have earned her over 300,000 fans for her webcomic, As Per Usual. Lee juxtaposes her experiences as a Korean immigrant preserving her culture while forging her own identity in the U.S. Readers will relate to her ambition to succeed, combined with her inclination to get lost in social media; her pride at living on her own in New York City coupled with the nagging question of when she will become an “adult.”
Filled with earnest comics about identity, relationships, and, most importantly, snacks, Be Everything at Once will inspire you to be anything (and everything) you want.
