Samuel L. Jackson will read “Go the F**k to Sleep” on Letterman


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It started as a joke. It is becoming a publishing phenomenon.

We’re talking about the jokey kid book “Go the Fuck to Sleep,” conceived by author Adam Mansbach on Facebook that went viral nearly a year ago and now seems to be taking on a life of its own.

Published by Akashic Books, the book – which was rushed into stores on Tuesday to meet demand – will debut this week at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list for advice books, according to THR. Last night, more than 400 patrons “paid $15-2$5 a ticket to attend a launch event at the New York Public Library that featured a recorded reading by German director Werner Herzog,” the trade notes, adding that Samuel L. Jackson, who records the audiobook version of the story, “will do a live reading of an excerpt on Thursday’s Late Show With David Letterman.”

Akashic Books owner Johnny Temple said that a G-rated “completely kid-friendly” version of the story will be published. In addition, more than 15 deals for foreign versions are either completed or in the works.

“Some of these places are a bit socially conservative,” Temple added.

Knowing Hollywood, can a feature film be far behind?
