Summary
"From legendary actor and activist Sean Penn comes a scorching, darkly funny novella about Bob Honey--a modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin. He's just a guy trying to make it through each day while grappling with loneliness, alienation, violence--uncertain of his place in a culture that considers branding more important than being. Bob Honey has a hard time connecting with other people. He dreams he is sleeping with his ex-wife every night, and imagines waking up unhappy next to her every morning. Advertising, entertainment, and commerce rule his days; he's sick of being marketed to every moment, but is unable to pry himself away from the constant feed. A paragon of American entrepreneurialism, Bob sells septic tanks to Jehovah's Witnesses and arranges colorful pyrotechnic displays for foreign dictators. He's also a part-time assassin for an off-the-books program run by the CIA that targets the elderly, the infirm, and others who drain this consumption-driven society of its resources. When a nosy journalist starts asking questions, Bob can't decide if it's a chance to form some sort of new friendship or if it's the beginning of the end for him. With treason on everyone's lips, terrorism in everyone's sights, and American political life racing to ever-lower standards, Bob decides it's time to make a change. If he doesn't get killed by his mysterious controllers or exposed in the rapacious media first. Perfect for fans of books by Chuck Palahniuk and Hunter S. Thompson, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a provocative, biting, timely novella that marks the publishing debut of one of America's most acclaimed artists"--
