The Tenacity of the Cockroach

Серия: "-"

Since its creation in 1993, The Onion A. V. Club has run an extraordinary array of interviews with venerable directors, creators, writers, actors, and musicians who articulately and often controversially expound upon their unique careers. Having its content paired with The Onion's humor allows the A. V. Club to focus its attention away from boring starlets and flashes in the pan. Instead, they interview the story-tellers, with an emphasis on the bitter, jilted cranks who've been in the business long enough to not mince words about their experiences. Mixing the in-depth style of NPR or Rolling Stone with its own unconventional subject matter, this collection weaves high and low culture with equal appreciation and understanding. Included in the book are interviews with Robert Altman, Chuck Jones, Berkeley Breathed, Pam Grier, Merle Haggard, William H. Macy, Russ Meyer, Mr. T, Gene Simmons, Joss Whedon, and dozens more. The Onion A. V. Club's friend and resident pundit, Weird Al Yankovic, provides commentary on select pieces.
