Stop Ripping My Sh*t Off!
Adam Mansbach's children's-book-not-for-children Go the Fuck to Sleep reads like The Very Hungry Caterpillar according to Lenny Bruce.
A taste: "The owls fly forth from the treetops. Through the air, they soar and they sweep. A hot crimson rage fills my heart, love. For real, shut the fuck up and sleep."
In a recent chat with Mansbach, he told us how he has his two-year-old daughter (and Facebook!) to thank for the number-one New York Times bestseller, and how a spate of imitators has him angry enough to, well, write another children's book. Stop Ripping My Shit Off has a nice ring to it.
