Samuel L. Jackson Narrates Go the F*** to Sleep

Samuel L. Jackson recorded a six-minute audiobook version of Adam Mansbach‘s profane children’s book for adults, Go the F*** to Sleep.

Currently (as of this June 15 writing) Audible is offering the funny audiobook for free–follow this link to download. Apparently filmmaker and brilliant narrator Werner Herzog will also record an audiobook version.

Jackson explained in the narration: “I was anxious to do the audio read of this book because my agent has twins and he gave me the book and I read it and I fell out laughing. I remember all those times when I did read to my daughter when she was that age. Everybody tells you reading stories will put kids to sleep, but it never works. It didn’t in my house.”

Former GalleyCat editor Ron Hogan has been rounding up lists of other actors who should read future audiobook versions of the book. Check it out: “Future audiobooks of GO THE F TO SLEEP should be read by Walken, @WilliamShatner, @GeorgeTakei, @StepehnFry, and @julieklausner.”
