Something That May Shock and Discredit You
by Daniel M. Lavery
Sometimes you just have to yell. New York Times bestselling author of Texts from Jane Eyre Daniel M. Lavery has mastered the art of “poetic yelling,” a genre surely familiar to fans of his cult-favorite website The Toast.
In this irreverent essay collection, Lavery expands on this concept with in-depth and hilarious studies of all things pop culture, from the high to low brow. From a thoughtful analysis on the beauty of William Shatner to a sinister reimagining of HGTV’s House Hunters, Something That May Shock and Discredit You is a laugh-out-loud funny and whip-smart collection for those who don’t take anything—including themselves—much too seriously.
Author Daniel M. Lavery identifies as bisexual/queer.
