In an interview with The Rolling Stones on April 4, 2018, Sean Penn discusses his new book he dedicated to the “culture in the country”. The author of newly released novel, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, says he wanted readers to notice him.
Sean Penn was a new author before publishing “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, and his content went viral upon reaching his fans. His novel mentions a variety of content from legitimate pop culture involving the #MeToo movement and Donald Trump to strange scientific content relating to the main character who is fascinated with dictators, assassinations and foreign prisons. This was to reflect on very strange times.
His work was known to create a oddball Americana that rarely lacked ambition. The strange content created in his novel is directed towards Penn’s vision to create a legacy, in addition to being considered the finest actors of his generations. The 56 year-old actor has starred in Oscar-winning films such as Mystic River, a crime drama that was released in 2003 co-starring Laurence Fishburne and Clint Eastwood, and Milk, a biography drama film released in 2008 about gay activism, that co-starred with James Franco. He is also a performer and director.
With his debut novel, the author wanted to push his voice and experience the freedom that comes with it. He was surprised by the fact that he hadn’t written a novel sooner, and was excited to do it. Additionally, he did not want readers to mix up fiction with opinion based on the message of his novel.
Penn intends on writing more novels in the future, with or without getting published. He finds peace in the process and finds it to be an easy way to exercise his thoughts. He also believes that it is currently something that he would become more accustomed to than filmmaking or acting.
