‘Go the F*ck to Sleep’ Sequel Wonders Why Kids Won’t F*cking Eat
Parents, when your precious angel rips you from your three hours of sleep to demand food that he won’t actually eat, you’ll want this f’ing book.
From the author of the wildly successful “children’s book” Go The Fuck to Sleep comes a sequel that tackles an age-old battle between parent and child: You Have to Fucking Eat.
Author Adam Mansbach digs deep into the struggles of reasoning with a small child who refuses to perform even the most basic life skills, prompting the question, “Why the fuck won’t you eat?”
As for how Mansbach came up with the sequel’s topic, he told Mashable: “Because it’s such a fundamental thing — one of life’s great joys, in fact — there’s a particular frustration that comes with not being able to get your kid to eat. Trying to get a kid to put on her shoes might be crazy-making, but it’s not quite the same as having her reject the basic concept of sustenance. It seemed to me like a universal experience, and one that parents would welcome the chance to commune over and laugh about.”
The 2011 picture book Go The Fuck to Sleep is a number one New York Times Bestseller. Though Ricardo Cortés illustrated the original, the upcoming sequel is illustrated by Owen Brozman, whose work has appeared in National Geographic, Time Out New York and Scholastic publications.
While You Have to Fucking Eat hits shelves Nov. 12, word’s still out on whether Samuel L. Jackson will be recording the audiobook.
