Mostly recognized as the Sierra Mist guy and the host of VH1s I Love the . . . series, screenwriter/actor/comedian Michael Ian Black is now aiming to take the literary world by storm with his modestly titled new book, My Custom Van: And 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face, which (incredibly) features a foreword by Abe Lincoln himself! This afternoon at Bryant Parks Reading Room, Black will read from such stirring essays as Why I Used a Day-Glo Magic Marker to Color My Dick Yellow and How to Approach the Sensitive QuestionAnal? Tell Black, who recently launched the Transform David Sedaris Into a Supervillain Contest on his blog, why you think hes better than the bestselling humorist, and hell be sure to sign your book with extra love.
