Sean Penn is out with a new thriller and not a film, in fact, he says he is almost done with acting. It is a sad affair for his fans that his bidding goodbye to acting but it is very accommodating to his creative muscles and additionally very comforting that he will bless their days with thrilling content.
Penn has now turned writer and his virgin book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a masterpiece of absurd fiction. This book is funny and satirical and is observant of the state of affairs of modern-day America. Penn says it is entirely a work of fiction but he also says in a way it is a venting medium for him to express his mind on what he thinks is wrong with the American society.
Penn says a lot of people are not concerned about their legacy, but he is at a critical point of life where he cares about his contribution to the world and the book is just the first baby step in his quest. For a man who has received academy awards recognition for his remarkable career in the acting industry, legacy should be the last of his worries in his life, but not for Penn. He says that while Hollywood offered him a big break in his career he feels that his creativity was always censored by the industries policies. He says that writing has offered him freedom from collaboration and now he can stretch his creative ability to the maximum.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff
The book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is based on a fictional character called Bob who is middle-aged American who does not give smiles for free. Bob is a salesperson, entrepreneur and also an assassin. Bob is a sad person who is not on good terms with his landlord and he expresses his frustration through a letter which he indicates that the landlord should better have a change of mind.
The character is reminiscent of today’s modern-day American who is tired of how things are being administered in the country. Bob does what he can and works hard by selling septic tanks alongside some other side jobs like helping post-war victims and helping people of Haiti rebuild after a natural catastrophe. Perhaps his most notable hustle is that of assassinating old people. He thinks that he is doing the environment a favor by getting rid of the elderly citizens with his chosen weapon, a wooden mallet. This is satire at its best. According to Penn the character in Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is totally out of creativity and should be treated like it is; completely fictitious.
