Bad Motherfucker: On Sale Now!

It’s the one that says Bad Motherfucker.

I am motherfucking delighted to let you know that my book about Samuel L. Jackson, Bad Motherfucker, is on sale now. It’s a deep dive into his fascinating life, into his filmography of 140-plus movies, and into the meaning of cool in the 21st century.

(It also has dozens of amazing artists reimagining the posters from some of Jackson’s greatest movies: a gallery show you can enjoy without leaving your home!)

Excerpts from a couple of advance reviews:

“A rollicking, expletive-filled look at the life and career of ‘The King of Cool’…. Edwards is especially adept in his handling of Jackson’s personal life, including his triumph over cocaine addiction and involvement in the civil rights movement. This highly entertaining consideration of the prolific actor is long overdue.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A revealing look at the unlikely career trajectory of Samuel L. Jackson…. ‘In a fair world, I’d probably have three or four Oscars,’ Jackson has said. This entertaining book proves the point.” — Kirkus Reviews

What’s that? You say you’d like to read a sample of the book before you buy a copy? Well, you are in luck, because you can choose from an excerpt in LitHub about his student activism and how that led to his getting thrown out of college, an excerpt in Vanity Fair about Jackson’s cocaine addiction and how that played into his breakthrough performance in Jungle Fever, and an excerpt on Letterboxd about some of the movies Jackson never made, and the strange saga of the animated movie Quantum Quest.

The book is on sale now everywhere (well, everywhere that sells books, anyway) and I hope you’ll check it out. Bad Motherfucker: ask for it by name.
