'Public Apology,' The Book, Coming Soon

Oh, just announced: there is going to be a book stemming from our longest-running feature, Dave Bry's Public Apology! Grand Central, the fun group at Hachette, will be publishing. Soon you can feel all the shame, awkwardness and hilarity in one convenient place.

Oh, here is good news indeed on this dreary day. I'll even buy you a beer when I see you. Budweiser, as you insist.

kittenplan (#339)

I am buying this thing, because I cannot adequately express my love and admiration for this column except with actual money*. Congratulations, Dave Bry!

I'll blurb you Dave, if you'd like.

Someone should give Dave Bry a radio show.

Mine is a face made for it.

I am going to buy a copy for me and one for every member of my knitting circle.

Bittersweet (#765)

Only stc can make "knitting circle" sound vaguely ominous.

Congratulations! I can't wait to read it.

IBentMyWookie (#133)

But when's the new Iron and Wine album coming out?

Dave Bry (#422)

Thanks everybody, very much! The Awl is really just the best, best company to be in.

Miles Klee (#3,657)

Now to arrange it so that Dave wrongs me somehow, thereby guaranteeing myself a mention.

Matt (#26)

He could buy you a shirt with a crew neck. (Congrats, sir!)

Bittersweet (#765)

Or some cargo shorts.

Annie K. (#3,563)

Just excellent! That makes me so happy.

Such great news! (Dave was *just* talking about this as a possibility the other day, at Xi'an famous foods, over the sandwich that he should also get to write a book about!)

BadUncle (#153)

Will you sign my kindle?

El Matardillo (#586)

The colors in the first frame of the video above make it look like a giant Indiana-Jones-boulder is about to roll over those poor people. Why don't you apologize for that, Dave?

Oh, congratulations!

Bittersweet (#765)

Hooray! So psyched to buy this when it comes out.

Smitros (#5,315)

Felicitations, Mr. Bry!

NinetyNine (#98)

So sorry to hear this.

mathnet (#27)

David! Bry!

Jasmine (#8)

Honest to god makes my day. AMAZING

gumplr (#66)


I assume this means you're going to have to kick up the bad behavior for volume two, right?

(Kidding! Congratulations, Dave, can't wait!)

Honest to goodness, our little backchannel was wondering just recently why this hadn't happened yet. And now IT HAS!

Murgatroid (#2,904)

God, I just went on my semiannual "catch up on books" book buying spree yesterday.

I missed this earlier. Very favorable!
