Sean Penn is widely known as an actor. He is also now a novelist with the release of his new book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. This book was released in late March in hardcover form with a paperback version to follow. The book is about a guy named Bob Honey who is a political activist, rather like something else Sean Penn is known for. However, Bob Honey is adamant about political change and something like a letter-writing campaign is far too small for him. Instead, he is drawn to committing acts of violence in order to foment change.
In talking about the premise of “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, Sean Penn said that he motivated Bob Honey with his own political belief system. His book also takes aim at the Trump administration and many of the things that are wrong with it. Sean Penn has engaged in political activism in the United States as well as places like Iran, Cuba, and Iraq. He also once interviewed El Chapo, the notoriously violent Mexican drug lord.
“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is a satire. It is about current political movements such as Trump Resistance as well as the #metoo movement which has been exposing men who have sexually assaulted people. In this book he refers to Trump as “Mr. Landlord”, no doubt due to his owning hotels. Six pages of the book are about the #metoo movement and has thoughts about women’s issues.
Sean Penn said in an interview that he wanted to feel productive when he wrote, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. He says he has gotten pretty tired about how commercialized movies are nowadays and wanted to branch out to another medium. He has said that he is ready to live the life of a writer instead of that of someone involved in the movie industry.
“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is his first novel and he is planning on releasing more novels going forward. He says he already has another book in the works. There’s no telling yet whether it will be political or apolitical in nature.
