Actor, filmmaker, and political activist Sean Penn, discusses his most recent endeavor and first novel with KQED Forum host Michael Krasny. “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff" is a scorching, darkly funny novel about Bob Honey—a modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin. A thunderbolt of provocative words and startling images, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff marks the fiction debut of one of America’s most acclaimed artists.
“It seems wrong to say that so dystopian a novel is great fun to read, but it’s true. I suspect that Thomas Pynchon and Hunter S. Thompson would love this book.” —Salman Rushdie
