Adam Mansbach, Go The Fuck To Sleep

In 2011 Adam Mansbach was just another novelist, the sort whose books had titles like The End of the Jews and Angry Black White Boy. But then the young father made a joke on Twitter, and that joke spiraled into #1 New York Times bestseller Go The Fuck To Sleep. The cuss-filled picture book has since been translated into over forty languages. There was also the award-winning video Wake The Fuck Up, made for the 2012 Obama campaign. Speaking politics, Mansbach’s talk at Brown is entitled “Race, Profanity, Literature and Satire: Going the F*ck to Sleep in Donald Trump’s America.”
