Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Kanye West is making quite the assult of the world of literature. Earlier this year he released Thank You And You're Welcomea ragingly-essential, ghost-written 52 page book of aphorisms and witticisms from the Chi-Town wordsmith. October 20th sees the release of Glow In The Dark, the super-fancy picture book of his last tour and now he's teaming up with cult cartoon hero Bill Plympton for Through The Wire: Lyrics and Illuminations, an eighty-page graphic memoir that finds Plympton illustrating and expanding on the lyrics for 12 Kanye West songs.

Wow, three books in less than a year! That's impressive. Maybe someday he'll even write a real one! As fans of Plympton and West we remain, as always, cautiously optimistic.
