Unfortunately, Author Adam Mansbach's interview will be rescheduled to a new date as his plane was delayed. The show tonight featured information about Adam Mansbach as well as plugged the sponosors of the show and many exciting upcoming interviews! I will be interviewing Author Adam Mansbach about his most recent children’s book titled ‘Go the F@ck to Sleep.’ I came across this book when I heard it mentioned on The Howard Stern Show as Adam was doing an interview about it with The Howard 100 News Team. ‘Go the F@ck to Sleep’ is a bedtime book written for parents who live in the ‘real world,’ where nursery rhymes and other cute childish tactics do not always blissfully send children off to dreamland. The language used in the book is profane, affection yet radically honest as it captures the familiar and often ‘unspoken’ tribulations of putting your child down for the night. Also described as beautiful, subversive and pant-wettingly funny, this book is meant for new, old and expectant parents. It should probably not be read to your child! Adam Mansbach is a well-known published author and New Voices of Professor at Rutger’s University. Adam attended Columbia University and received a Master’s of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing. He has authored many books including ‘The End of the Jews’ (Spiegel & Grau), ‘Angry Black White Boy’ (Crown), Shackling Water’ (Doubleday, 2002) as well as a poetry collection titled ‘genius b-boy cynics getting weeded in the garden of delights’ (Subway & Elevated, 2002) and an anthology of original short stories which he co-edited with T Cooper titled ‘A Fictional History of the United States With Huge Chunks Missing’ (Akashic, 2006).
