Adam Mansbach has been a friend for years now – we still rap about records every time we link up – so it’s been with a mixture of happiness, pride and complete incredulity that I’ve witnessed the phenom that is his “children’s” book, Go The F— To Sleep which managed to become a best-seller with no formal marketing at all.
I’ll have more to say about all this in a couple of weeks when Adam joins me, in studio, to tape an episode of The Sidebar but this was just too good to pass up. The official audiobook version of his runaway hit is read by…Samuel Jackson. Perfect, right?
Somehow, I thought Jackson’s read was even funnier with your basic “beep” edit. If you’d prefer the profane version, help yourself at Audible. Otherwise, enjoy this as a teaser for our upcoming chit-chat.
