"Go the F**k to Sleep" is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, it captures the familiar---and unspoken---tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. Beautiful and subversive, /Go the F**k to Sleep/ is a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.
