Description

"Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years,
quite like this."
--The New Yorker

"A parenting zeitgeist"
--Washington Post

"A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep."
--National Public Radio

"A new Bible for weary parents"
--New York Times

"Resonates powerfully with almost everyone"
--Boston Globe

"Go the F*** to Sleep challenges stereotypes, opens up prototypes, and acknowledges that shared sense of failure that
comes to all parents who weary of ever getting their darling(s) to sleep and briefly resuming the illusion of a life of
their own."
--Midwest Book Review

Go the F*** 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 blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest,
California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar--and unspoken--tribulations
of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting
us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.

With illustrations by Ricardo Cortes, Go the F*** to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny--a book
for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep, a children's book inspired by Go the F*** to Sleep and appropriate for kids of all ages, is
forthcoming from Akashic Books in April 2012 and available NOW for pre-order.
