Sock by Penn Jillette

Book Description

Twisting the buddy cop story upside down and inside out, Penn Jillette has created the most distinctive narrator to come along in fiction in many years: a sock monkey called Dickie. The sock monkey belongs to a New York City police diver who discovers the body of an old lover in the murky waters of the Hudson River and sets off with her best friend to find her killer. The story of their quest swerves and veers, takes off into philosophical riffs, occasionally stops to tell a side story, and references a treasure trove of 1970's and 1980's pop culture. "Sock" is a surprising, intense, fascinating piece of work.

Presto! by Penn Jillette Presto!, Hardback (August 2016)

"An unconventional weight loss tale from an unconventional personality [in which] Penn Jillette tells how he lost 100 pounds with his trademark outrageous sense of humor and biting social commentary that makes this success story anything but ordinary"--

Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! by Penn Jillette Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday!, Paperback (July 2014)

Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Whether he's contemplating the possibility of life after death, deconstructing popular Christmas carols, or just calling bullsh't on Donald Trump's apprentice training, the author does not fail to shock and delight his readers.

Shell Shocked by Penn Jillette Shell Shocked, Paperback (April 2013)

If Howard Kaylan had sung only one song, the Turtles' 1967 number 1 smash hit "Happy Together", his place in rock-and-roll history would still be secure. But that recording, named in 1999 by BMI as one of the top 50 songs of the 20th century, with over five million radio plays, is only the tip of an iceberg. This title tells his story.
