“Look out for my forthcoming book, Go the F— to Sleep.”
Last June, that’s what Adam Mansbach, a teacher in the graduate writing program at Rutgers University, wrote on his Facebook page after he had some difficulty getting his 2-year-old daughter to settle down for the night.
That joke has become a best-selling book, illustrated by Mansbach’s friend Ricardo Cortes, and has been optioned to become a movie, reports Time. Mansbach has written a few novels, but “Go the F–k to Sleep” is his first best-seller. Galley copies have already been passed around online.
