Overview

They’re back! Sloane Tanen treats us to a second installment of her hilarious chicken dioramas in this sequel to her immensely popular Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same.

Join these fluffy, yellow, surprisingly human protagonists as they face a new series of dilemmas in their exquisitely crafted, miniature settings. Whether playing the online dating game, trying couples therapy, dealing with uncooperative children, discovering the melancholy of middle age, dreaming of a better life, or finally grasping the golden (or at least bronze) ring, these chickens encounter everyday troubles and triumphs as painfully recognizable as they are hilarious. Clever, charming, and endlessly entertaining, Going for the Bronze is a brilliant follow-up to a wholly unique bestseller.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The sages at Entertainment Weekly thought that they had deciphered the success of Sloane Tanen's Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same: "What's the appeal? The juxtaposition of poultry with Cosmo-girl musings." Now Tanen's fluffy yellow chicks are back in a new series of farmyard dilemmas. A hilarious follow-up to the book that Vanity Fair called "poignant and wickedly funny."
