Go the F**k to Sleep

Gift/Humour

Go the F**k 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, it captures the familiar -- and unspoken -- tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the F**k to Sleep is a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not play this for your children. "A children's book for grown-ups I really did laugh out loud--hilarious " -David Byrne, musician, father of one "Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend " -Cristina Garcia, author of The Lady Matador's Hotel, mother of one "This is the most honest children's book ever written. F**king hilarious." -A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, father of three "Go the F**k to Sleep is the secret anthem of tired parents everywhere." -Bliss Broyard, author of One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life, mother of two "Captures the beautiful struggle of being a parent at its rawest point: bedtime." -Daniel Sinker, author of The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of @MayorEmanuel, father of one
