Overview

Sh*t Rough Drafts collects imagined misguided early drafts of classic books, screenplays, and contemporary literature, creating visions of alternate works that would exist had the authors not come to their senses. What if F. Scott Fitzgerald had gone with the title The Coolest Gatsby? How would The Hunger Games change if Peeta were armed only with blueberry muffins? If the Man of Steel's S stood for Sexyman? MacBeth, Moby Dick, Harry Potter, Sense and Sensibility, The Lord of the Rings, and many more are each presented as if they were the actual typed or handwritten pages by the authors themselves, revealing the funny and frightful works they might have been with a little less capable judgment.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Pop culture classics are fragile things. Even a single small change can push them down the chute to oblivion. For example, Robert Louis Stevenson's immortal monster story might not have passed any publisher's muster if Dr. Jekyll had changed into Mrs. Hyde; and a certain unnamed children's character might not be quite so well-known if he had mentioned that he not only disliked green eggs and ham; he was also gluten intolerant. Paul Laudiero's irreverent Sh*t Rough Drafts meditates on how even standards like Harry Potter, Moby Dick, and The Hunger Games could have taken drastic early wrong turns.
