Go the F*ck to Your Local Bookstore

Posted By on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 10:26 AM

We told you we knew what everyone would be reading this summer, and we were right.

(Mmm, smugness on a sunny Friday morning is better than coffee.)

Gloating aside, though, we're curious: Have you read Go the F*ck to Sleep yet?

If you did, leave a comment and tell us what you think.

If you haven't, please enjoy the following delectable links to find out more about this summer's "it" book, which speaks wittily and knowingly to the Hyde side of every well-meaning Jekyll parent. (Don't worry, you're not the only one who's horrified by your own parental fantasies involving a 5 p.m. bedtime and enough Nyquil to fell a horse.)

Read the background story of the book's creator, Adam Mansbach, who has a bedtime-avoiding daughter of his own.

Learn more about the little alt-publishing house that suddenly found itself with a major hit on its hands.

Once you've read the reviews, entertain yourself with outraged comments from readers who didn't realize this ISN'T a book for children.

Don't forget to check out the audiobook, which is read by none other than Samuel L. Jackson.

On Thursday night, Jackson read an excerpt from the book on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Bigger than Percy Jackson, snarkier than Goodnight Moon... Go the F*ck to Sleep!
