Why Is Sarah Silverman Quoted On the Back of Gil Scott-Heron's Memoir?
We often receive advance copies of forthcoming books here at the office. Today we got The Last Holiday, memoir of recently deceased Gil Scott-Heron, which is coming out in January 2012. These are the people quoted on the back: Chuck D, Eminem, and...Sarah Silverman.
Yes, Sarah Silverman.
It's random, right? Chuck D and Eminem, OK, that makes sense. But what connection could Sarah Silverman possibly have to Gil Scott-Heron, radical poet, artist, and musician?
Her blurb came from a tweet. Book publishing is really something these days.
