In case you haven’t heard yet, Samuel L Jackson has narrated an audio version of the “Go the F**k to Sleep”, mock bedtime story written by Adam Mansbach which is aimed at sleep-deprived parents.
The book has already become a huge success. It was released in June with advance sales of over 100,000 copies and it’s already in its fifth print.
“I wanted to sort of do a riff on these classic children’s books that are all like very dreamy, and gauzy and loving and have little animals and stuff, and I wanted to contrast that with the interior monologue of the parent putting the kid to sleep,” Mansbach explained.
The 62-year-old Pulp Fiction star said he was inspired to record the audio version of “Go The F*** To Sleep” after he was told about it by his agent who has young twins.
