Overview

Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth is proof that a funny book on pop culture doesn't have to be snide and nasty. I loved everything about it.” —Jim Gaffigan
 
We all know how Darth Vader shared his big secret with Luke Skywalker, but what if he had delivered the news in a handwritten note instead? And what if someone found that letter, as well as all of the drafts that landed in the Dark Lord’s trash can? In the riotously funny collection Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth, John Moe finally reveals these lost notes alongside all the imagined letters, e-mails, text messages, and other correspondences your favorite pop culture icons never meant for you to see.
 
From The Walking Dead to The Wizard of Oz, from Billy Joel to Breaking Bad, no reference escapes Moe’s imaginative wit and keen sense of nostalgia. Read Captain James T. Kirk’s lost log entries and Yelp reviews of The Bates Motel and Cheers. Peruse top secret British intelligence files revealing the fates of Agents 001–006, or Don Draper’s cocktail recipe cards. Learn all of Jay-Z’s 99 problems, as well as the complete rules of Fight Club, and then discover an all-points bulletin concerning Bon Jovi, wanted dead or alive—and much more.
 
Like a like a bonus track to a favorite CD or a deleted scene from a cult movie, Dear Luke, We Need to Talk Darth offer a fresh twist on the pop culture classics we thought we knew by heart. You already know part of their story. Now find out the rest.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Until now, you hadn't seen public announcements from the Jurassic Park Recreation Department or the court-order letter from Dora the Explorer's mother, but that drought is ended. This debut collection by the host of America Public Media's nationally syndicated Wits gathers imaginary documents, rough drafts, and notes to and from the famous and formerly famous. The rejected Super Bowl Halftime Show Proposals alone are worth the price of the trade paperback and NOOK Book originals.

From the Publisher
Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth is proof that a funny book on pop culture doesn't have to be snide and nasty. I loved everything about it.” —Jim Gaffigan
 
"John Moe has been making me laugh for 1,249 years (we are both immortal), and Dear Luke is, not surprisingly, EXTREMELY FUNNY. I expect him to entertain us all for another 1,249, unless I am able to hunt him down and cut off his head before then, because there can be only one."  —John Hodgman
 
 “Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth ranks among the finest collections of nonsense ever assembled. For those seeking hilarity in short bursts of pop culture inanity, this book is for you.” —Michael Ian Black
 
This book of brilliant parodies, riffs and flights of pop culture fantasy shows why John Moe has so quickly risen to become the second funniest man in public radio.—Peter Sagal, host, NPR's Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me

 “This book made me laugh while learning, which is the best kind of funny. Knowledge that comes from a laugh is so much better than coughing that comes from a laugh.”
Margaret Cho
