In 1997, the world obtained a grainy video revealing lurid excerpts from honeymooners Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's post-wedding celebration aboard a small yacht. Laying bare the mysteries of their intimate lives, this video became the first spark in a long and culturally supported trend: the leaked celebrity home movie. Aligning criminal histories with transcribed extracts from such broadcasts, If You Won't Read Then Why Should I Write? documents the bathetic moments beyond a publicist's protective shield, while offering a sobering appraisal of American social justice. Kimmy K at Burger King. The petit shamanism of Miley smoking salvia divinorum. Vince bouncing on a bed. This is literature at its darkest.

Read from the Book

"It's been my experience, and I'm not saying I'm smart, but I'm not stupid. Like I know Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. He didn't write the Constitution, that was a whole bunch of guys. Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin. A whole bunch of cats, they were called the Founding Fathers. How bout that? And they wrote it where? Philadelphia. See, good for me... Know what I paid attention to in school? Whose tits were getting bigger.” - Tom Sizemore Delivers A Soliloquy While In Bed With A Prostitute

Editorial Reviews

"Set at the dusk of the neoliberal utopia, "If You Won't Read, Then Why Should I Write?" is perhaps the most assailing diagnosis of the collective state of the American mind."- Maxi Kim (Author, HTMLGiant)
