What if a child, asked to go the f**k to sleep by its father, could respond in adult language? Who wrote "As I Lay Meditating" and "Apu Salaam, Apu Salaam?" This parody and satire by a father of 3 kids, 12 books, and one kicking and screaming Inner Child that refuses to go to sleep also imagines:--A band of 5000 yogis flown in from India specifically to balance India's budget deficit by spilling coffee on their laps at 5,000 McDonald's restaurants.--A Nuclear Weapons fire sale to help balance America's deficit--The story of an Indian men's magazine which ran a special Sex Issue, with condoms glued to the inside of the magazine for readers who might be too aroused to search for a condom.This 30,000-word book of humorous essays and of political, social, and intercultural satire is the author's ninth book. Kurt Vonnegut called his first novel, "The Revised Kama Sutra," "very funny." Among other things, it pokes fun at at familiar stereotypes about Indians and Americans, besides providing a revised, post-p.c. version of Genesis.As one magazine's review of "The Revised Kama Sutra" said, "No sacred cows whatsoever."You probably should not read it to your children under 15. However, don't be surprised if they decide to read it to you. The e-book edition was No. 2 on Amazon's Political Humor bestseller list for nearly 5 weeks. "Hysterical and informative. For the rebel in you. Great style and humor"--Linda J. Lundy, Amazon 5-star review"Inspired silliness, Pythonesque goofiness, political bite."--Laurie Boris, Author of "The Joke's on Me."

Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night. Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old, and expectant*. (*You should probably not read this to your children.)

Letters to Felice

Franz Kafka first met Felice Bauer in August 1912, at the home of his friend Max Brod. The twenty-five-year-old career woman from Berlin—energetic, down-to-earth, life-affirming—awakened in him a desire to marry. Kafka wrote to Felice almost daily, sometimes even twice a day. Because he was living in Prague and she in Berlin, their letters became their sole source of knowledge of each other. But soon after their engagement in 1914, Kafka began having doubts about the relationship, fearing that marriage would imperil his dedication to writing and interfere with his need for solitude. Through their break-up, a second engagement in 1917, and their final parting later that year, when Kafka began falling ill with the tuberculosis that would eventually claim his life, their correspondence continued. The more than five hundred letters that Kafka wrote to Felice over the course of those five years were acquired by Schocken from her in 1955. They reveal the full measure of Kafka's inner turmoil as he tried, in vain, to balance his need for stability with the demands of his craft. "These letters are indispensable for anyone seeking a more intimate knowledge of Kafka and his fragmented world." —Library Journal
