Bob Odenkirk Wrote a Book of Plays, Monologues, Short Fiction, and Free-Verse Poetry


Bob Odenkirk is set to release his first book, a collection of short pieces called A Load of Hooey that’s set to come out via publisher McSweeney’s later this year. The book will include a variety of different stuff, including plays, monologues, short fiction, and free-verse poetry, with pieces titled “Martin Luther King, Jr’s Worst Speech Ever,” “Obituary for the Creator of Madlibs,” and more. Odenkirk, who is set to star in the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, released a collection of unproduced scripts he co-wrote with David Cross last fall called Hollywood Said No!, but A Load of Hooey will be the first solo book he’s authored.
