Actor Sean Penn will talk about his new novel, “Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn,” Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Women’s Club of Ridgewood. For information, visit mkt.com/bookends.
The $35 registration fee includes a pre-signed book.
In a 2018 interview with Vogue, Penn said that “writing books (will) probably dominate my creative energies for the foreseeable future.” He published his first novel, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff,” that year.
“Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn” (Rare Bird Books, 176 pp., $26) is due out Sept. 10. It’s described by its publisher, Rare Bird Books, as “part comedy and part thriller.”
According to the company, it “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.”
