I’ll keep this brief, but in a nutshell: Hey, the book is out! Y’know, my new book, Richard Pryor: American Id, which I tracked the writing of right here on this very blog, is now available in paperback and ebook, from The Critical Press, Amazon, and fine local booksellers across the country. I’m very proud of it, and I think you’ll like it, and hey, if you don’t, it’s $10-$15 and you can read it in like two hours.
And it’s getting good reviews! Kristy Puchko wrote this very nice rave over at Pajiba, and Justin Remer was also super-positive in this review at my old stomping ground, DVD Talk. Oh, and I did this radio interview at KMUW, my hometown public radio station.
All that stuff and more is at the book’s website (here, if you’ve forgotten), in addition to an all-new section of the site called “Supplements,” where I’ve rounded up, linked, and embedded as many of the clips and articles and things referenced in the book as I could find. It’s basically a really good resource if you finish the book and wanna hear/watch/read some of that stuff.
