Bruce Eric Kaplan reads and signs "Someone Farted"

Brentwood

Bruce Eric Kaplan at DIESEL, A Bookstore in BrentwoodDIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Bruce Eric Kaplan to the store to read and sign Someone Farted on Sunday, April 29th at 3:00 pm. Please note that this event will take place in the lower outdoor courtyard adjacent to our store. 

Two words throw a family's car trip into utter (and smelly) chaos in this hilarious story of denial from Bruce Eric Kaplan.

The Krupkes are having a nice, peaceful Saturday morning drive to the grocery store when: it happens.
Someone. Farts. The car is thrown into chaos. Sister turns against brother. Mom almost faints. Dad almost gets into an accident. The smell is so bad it's criminal--so criminal they all end up in jail! And still, no one will take responsibility for the odious odor. Will the Krupkes make it through this ordeal in one piece, or will they fracture from the unending accusations of "whoever smelt it dealt it?"

Bruce Eric Kaplan, known for his distinctive, off-beat single-panel cartoons, has been a New Yorker cartoonist for more than fifteen years. He is also a television writer and was an executive producer for the acclaimed HBO series Six Feet Under, as well as a writer on Seinfeld. He has authored and illustrated seven adult titles including the cult classic The Cat That Changed My Life; the collections I Love You, I Hate You, I'm Hungry; No One You Know; This Is a Bad Time; and three titles featuring the wonderfully neurotic Brooklyn couple Edmund and Rosemary: Every Person on the Planet, Edmund and Rosemary Go to Hell, and Everything Is Going to Be Okay. Bruce is also the author and illustrator of three previous picture books: Monsters Eat Whiny Children, Cousin Irv from Mars, and Meaniehead. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
