Sean Penn with Barry Eisler - Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn
Sean Penn in conversation with Barry Eisler about Penn’s madcap follow-up novel
Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn—Sean Penn’s madcap follow-up to his debut novel Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, which was hailed by authors as diverse as Salman Rushdie, Jane Smiley, and Paul Theroux—explores the deepest recesses of American politics and culture.
Bob Honey, the disillusioned divorcee with a penchant for murder by mallet, weaves his way toward Washington DC for the ultimate showdown with a certain nefarious “landlord,” but nothing is as it seems, and Bob will have more than just the government working against him.
Part comedy and part thriller, Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn establishes Sean Penn as a fixture of the literary landscape for years to come.
Sean Penn won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performances in Mystic River and Milk, and received Academy Award nominations as Best Actor for Dead Man Walking, Sweet and Lowdown, and I Am Sam. He has worked as an actor, writer, producer, and director on over one hundred theater and film productions. His journalism has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, The Nation, and The Huffington Post.
Barry Eisler’s award-winning thrillers have been included in numerous “Best Of” lists, have been translated into nearly twenty languages, and include the #1 bestsellers Livia Lone, The Night Trade, and The Killer Collective. Eisler lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and, when he’s not writing novels, blogs about national security and the media.
