Adam Mansbach is author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Go the Fuck to Sleep, as well as the novels Rage is Back, Angry Black White Boy, and the California Book Award-winning The End of the Jews, and (with Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel) the bestselling A Field Guide to the Jewish People. Mansbach’s debut screenplay, for the 2016 Neflix Original BARRY, was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and an NAACP Image Award. His film projects include THE HANDLER, a crime thriller produced by Thunder Road, and SUPER HIGH. His memoir in verse, I Had A Brother Once, was published by One World/Random House in April, 2022 and a 10th anniversary box set of all three books in the Go the Fuck to Sleep series is forthcoming.
