Sara Benincasa's 'Real Artists Have Day Jobs' Comprises Many Chapters, Words. Buy Her Book!

Hello citizens! It is I, Sara Benincasa, longtime Wonkette contributor and longer-time Wonkette commenter. I am here to tell you about my new book,Real Artists Have Day Jobs, which you can obtain via preorder or REGULAR ORDER, depending on whether it is before 4/26/2016 or after! You, garbage leftist bed-wetter, really need this book. It will teach you the way of conservative values. HAHAHA! JK! No really, it’s a lot of fun and I think you’ll dig it. It’s got funny, loving advice based on the many times I’ve fucked up and the very few times I’ve gotten something right the first time.

Trust me when I say this book is self-deprecating and goofy and heartfelt and loving and it’s not preachy or holier-than-thou. I am an actual garbage leftist bed-wetter so I have no high horse to sit upon whilst proclaiming my own genius.

I’m a dork.

I hope you are, too.

The dork in me bows to the dork in you.
