I reported on this last month, but it wasn’t perfect enough.
Samuel L. Jackson has been hired to read the audio version of the new comedic children’s book, ‘Go the F**k to Sleep.
Obligatory caution: language.
From my earlier post:
Go the F**k to Sleep is a children’s bedtime book for adults by Adam Mansbach (Author) and Ricardo Cortes (Illustrator).
I guarantee that I’ll get a copy because I love biting humor, and because every honest parent will admit that he or she has thought this expression in his/her mind (if not muttered it under their breath) at some point during child rearing.
I’m sorry, but this is funny. So criticize it in public if you want, and deny you’ve ever read/listened to it at church, but if you’re a parent, at least admit to yourself that you’ve been there (or at least neat to there) at least once, and that this is actually captures some of the frustration in a rather funny way.
UPDATE: Werner Herzog reads the book at the NY Public Library.
