Sarah Silverman Hits Bookshelves Today

We haven’t read Sarah Silverman’s new book, “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee.” But we have read her author profile on, and that’s pretty much all we need to recommend the thing:

Why did I write a book, you might wonder? Because it just seemed like the right time to be getting into the publishing industry.

I’m kidding. Publishing is rotting like an abandoned possum carcass on the shoulder of I-95. I know that for a fact, because shortly after my book deal was announced, I kept hearing people lament the imminent demise of literature. These days there is only one reason to write a book: to be taken seriously. And that is exactly what is about to happen to me. I’m an author now! Like Ernest Hemingway and Fyodor Dostoevsky!

Silverman will be at Book Soup in West Hollywood on April 29 for a signing.
